You can have it clear-coated (I think). It won't remain perfect if you keep playing it, but it can last for a long time and wont be prone to fading. The only way to keep it perfect is if you stop playing it and put it in a protective glass display (for show).
I had mine clear coated. It cost alot, but worth every penny. Just make sure you trust the person doing the job. This picture was taken after the clearcoat. It came out perfect, looks like a factory job and the signature is safe so I can play and play and play.
Personally, I would have had him sign something like the pickguard because you can just swap a new one on for playing and no worries about damaging the autograph. You can also get rattlecan clearcoat to use on the signed pickguard to protect it. Just hit it in multiple, even, light sprays and you'll be good to go. Super cheap way to go, too.
