Post Clear coating over Ibanez Jem screen printed logo

Hi there, I have recently bought a collectable jem and want to clear coat over the Ibanez jem logo using nitro cellulose, but i am concerned that it may react with the paint that ibanez used to screen print it on with. Has anyone attempted this before with the original logos? My reason for doing this is not just to protect the logo (as we all know it can easily be scratched off with just a thumb nail) but it also has a couple of depressions in the headstock where some scratch marks have been removed. If these areas were to be filled/touched up, unfortunately it would leave ghost marks and would still be noticeable, plus working in these areas would more than likely disturb the fragile logo.
If anyone has successfully clear coated over the screen printed logos or knows what type of paint Ibanez used for them i would appreciate it. Thanks.
