So, I saw The Who in concert last night and was lucky enough to get the pickguard to my Gibson SG Classic signed by Pete Townshend himself. I want to preserve the signature as much as possible, and I'm wondering if there's any kind of sealer or finish that I can put over it? Would something as simple as a thin layer of super glue work?

Anyone tried anything like this?

The pickgaurd is going on your guitar? I'd just replace the pickgaurd and keep the signed one somewhere safe.

Word.
And yeah I think a couple of coats of lacquer or such should work fine.

Damn, a guitar signed by Pete Townshend. Even though it's just the pickguard, that will be worth a pretty penny someday.

Nah, I really want to play with it on. I know it's a risk, but a Pete Townshend-certified guitar must be allowed to rock out.

I'll look into getting some lacquer. Thanks for the advice!

It would suck if the lacquer reacted with the ink

I'm a little worried that the ink will dissolve with the lacquer. It's just Sharpie ink, but it's not really drying on the metal.

Bump. Someone's gotta have experience with this kind of thing.

Put a few coats of nitrocellulose laquer over it, should hopefully protect it.

Congrats on getting it signed! I had a dream I bought an SG Classic last night, wierd...
