So, I pulled out my strat (MIM Standard Strat) today and I noticed that there is a lighter spot on the pickguard. I tried to rub it, but nothing changed. It is oval-shaped. It looks like it might be from the sticker that was on it when I purchased it, but I bought it over a year ago. I've never noticed it before, if it was even there before. Also, the guitar has only been its case for about a week, so it hasn't been sitting out in the sun or anything recently.

Has anyone else had this problem on a new guitar? Also, is there anything I can do to fix this problem besides changing the pickguard?

Is it really that noticable? If you can't really notice it, there wouldn't be much to do.

Anyways, pickguards aren't to expensive, maybe $20 for one, or £30 or something for a Fender one.
