So the title is probably misleading. I'm not trying to make the guitar look older. I'm planning on removing the pickguard from my Gretsch Jim Dandy Flattop, and id hate to take it off just to have a big bright patch where the pickguard used to be. According to the site it has a "Vintage Semi Gloss" Finish, which is light enough where I thought it didn't have a finish at all (then again, I know nothing about finishes).
I only bought it in July, so idk if it'd be that obvious, but if it is, how could I go about evening it up?
