Well yeah, I hate having a big autograph in the front of your guitar. Good idea to change pickguard :D

All my autographed guitars are signed ON the guitar's body, not on the pickguards. It's easy to bring a pickguard to get signed and then put on any guitar. It means more (to me at least) when the actual guitar's body is signed in person as opposed to the pickguard. After any of my signature guitars get autographed, they certainly never get played, so there's no chance of a breakdown of the signature. And considering they're in their respected cases in a temperature and humidity controlled environment, there's ~zero~ chance that any harm will come to them. Reb Beach's WRB-3, Michael Schenker's ESP black & white flying V, Vinnie Moore's 'Splatter' VM-1 Star IV, members of VV's Invasion on my 1988 Vinnie Vincent Jackson, George Lynch and all his bandmates from Lynch Mob and Dokken on my ESP M1 Tiger, Yngwie Malmsteen on his Olympic White Stratocaster-maple fretboard, of course. On my 'hit list' is Adrian Vandenberg's signature for my 3 models (Fernandez, a mint 1st edition in black, and a custom 'Puzzle' graphic) and of course, Steve's FP77 now.

No coatings, no mylar

I am trying to buy an autographed guitar, but the signature issue has been asked. It's a gift, but little did I know the man wants to actually play the guitar. So should I have the signature lacquered skip the autograph version.

I am not sure about having a removable pick guard autographed, doesn't that decrease the sentiment from the guitar. ?

i got 2 signatures. one on the lower right corner of my guitar with no coating. and 1 or 2 coats of the POLYURETHANE SPRAY on the backside (where the guitar hits your chest). you only notice the coating if you angle light at it in the right way.
TIP: make a paper or tape spray guard around the desired area. :)
