What type of clear-coat on JEM7VWH

I was at the G3 concert in Copenhagen on monday and a friend of my brother brought his new JEM7VWH 2004 along so he could get a signature. The lucky guy got it, but now he wants to but a little more clear coat on the guitar in order to preserve it. He did a test today on the backside, but it has turned yellowish the area he did it on. Anybody know what kind of clear coat that is on the JEM7VWH?

Kind Regards

My suggestions:

No.1 Lightly and gently sand the guitar in the part where he aplied the new clearcoat, in order to remove the new clear. You can ask a Luthier to this in order to preserve the guitar and restore it to its original condition. After polishing it, it should be restored.

No2. Put a translucent sticker or tape over the signature, but dont mess with the clearcoat again.
