Polyurethane or polyester. You should be fine.

ryanb's right, it'll be either polyurethane or polyester. Don't worry about it too much, you should be able to leave it on a stand.

PRS, Gibson, Fender Custom Shop. That's all I can think of in my sleepy state.

Even then, it is not quite the 'nitro' from those 'days'. Real nitro has been banned for quite some time.

Why's it banned?

So how do Les Paul players keep their guitars upright? Are there special non-rubber using stands for nitro finished guitars?

It's vinyl that is the real enemy of nitrocellulose.
