I recently got my guitar autographed and I want to know the best way to take care of it. It was autographed on the pickguard with a regular sharpie. I'm afraid of the marker smudging if touched. It was signed in a place that nobody should be able to touch while playing but you never know. Is there something i can coat the pickguard in that can protect it? I thought about clear nail polish but I was told that that might change color over time and look real bad. I could always get a new pickguard but I thought it would be cooler to use as is.

Sorry, I forgot about that part. I got it signed by Paul Reed Smith at a recent PRS event.

Well, you could just take the pickguard off and replace it, framing the pickguard in a picture frame. Honestly, that's what I'd do, but I'm a bit over-protective.

Well you could send it to me, and I'll make sure that you never smear the signature on accident.

That is my first thought, but pickguards are surprisingly expensive and I thought it would look cool to gig with it as is.

at a gig no one will be able to see who signed it..

i would get a new pickguard or make a new one and fram the current one..

Thanks, it was pretty cool. To bad I handed him a strat to sign.

I think I will just get a new pickguard. It isn't worth the fuss to carry it around as is. The one I have is kinda dinged up from being hit by stuff anyways.
