Guitar compliant clothes are the way to go. As Sparky said, soft cotton is fine, and a belt buckle is bad. Gummed imprints on clothing are also dangerous.

 

I'm fanatic about my stuff since 36 years. Preserving my guitars has always ruled my stage presence.

 

Play Naked

Will work for the guitars, but you may keep your hair from being caught by string ferrules, vibrato parts or the like. Also check for applicable clothing rules before appearing in the nude at public events.

Well clearly THAT is your problem... 'les paul studio faded cherry'.

Any other guitar - Not an issue.

wear suspenders

 

put reflectors on the back like evh

 

don't worry about it because it's not that kind of guitar.

Aside from obvious answers like, play naked, or don't wear a belt buckle with barbed wire, you could actually try throwing an extra layer of clear coat on the back? It'll definitely be shinier, but it'll also protect it from scratches.

Yep, simple. Play with your shirt untucked and avoid metal buttons. Also, stay away from ornate belt buckles. I've been playing many of the same guitars since 2001, and I have few if any even light scratches. If you're referring to the very light scratches that you can see faintly in the light, those are pretty much unavoidable. Even a new guitar may have some of those. Since you're referring to the faded series, you should not have a finish, so the light scratches may not be an issue.
