Preserving a signature...what ink and/or covering?

Hi there -
Not sure if this is the correct forum but hope you don't mind. ;-)

I'd like to have an original ('87) Jem LNG or DY signed (and maybe a little extra "artwork") and I need guidance on the best way to proceed.

Would a Sharpie or similar "permanent" marker be best - OR - would some type of "paint pen" or other type ink be best in order to keep the signature as permanent as possible?

Would you then suggest covering/sealing the signature with a clear coat, lacquer, or other method (other than plastic/tape)?

I understand some of the early LNGs where signed withOUT permanent marker then a rattle-can clear coat was applied which made the signatures fade/run, etc...and I'd like to avoid this with my new signature/artwork.

Really appreciate advice -- especially any proven methods you may have used -- with details on what type of pen/ink and possible clear coats. Since I have the opportunity to use the right pen/ink for the signature vs. trying to preserve an existing Sharpie/etc...type signature, I'm hoping to do the best I can to preserve the signature (and still play the guitar) for many years to come! :-)

Thanks!!
