Nitrocellulose was the most common finish used on guitars and a large number of musicians still prefer the nitrocellulose finish over some of the newer polymer finishes claiming the sound is better with the older type finish. A harder finish usually provides for a better resonance/sound response of the instrument. The only negative aspect of the older finish was thermal shock when exposed to radical temperature changes. Winter months traveling with instruments in a cold environment could have problems when you brought the cold instrument into a warm building and opened the carrying case and exposing the cold instrument to the warm inside room temperatures.
