I did a search for this topic and didn't find anything that might help me. I recently came upon an autographed Epi LP Studio ebony model. The problem is that it is autographed all over (body and pick guard - picture in my profile). I would really like to be able to play it without losing the autographs.

It looks like the autographs were done with a silver paint pen of some sort.

How can I preserve this without losing the look of the guitar and without erasing or ruining the autographs?

Thanks.

That's what I thought. I just thought it might also make the autograph run.

You need to test over the exact pen used, so if you have the pen great, if not you will have to find a tiny part of the body hidden away some where you can test on and it doesnt matter if the pen runs.
