put a UV protectant finish on it is the only way I can think of, though Paduak may be one of the "air reacting" woods. I'm pretty sure it's UV though, so if you want it to stay orange, go with a UV poly finish or something like that.

Looks like a great guitar so far.

finish line...

when i got it from the lumber yard it was an orangey brown but when i cut it open...WHOA! its been in a corner of my garage out of sunlight so it may be the "air reacting" type. only parts that stayed orange were the parts that had something sitting on it or what it was sitting on keeping the "air" or UV from getting to it. ive heard there was NO WAY to keep it orange (even says the wood whisperer) but there are a few finishes that will slow the process. i wanna keep a light finish so when it turns brown i can just take it apart and give it a quick sanding to bring out the orange again...make sense?!?!

If things on top of it kept that part more orange then it's definitely a UV reaction. Spar varnish, while not a great finish for guitars will help slow the reaction.
