Actually, I have seen good results with 1 or 2 coats of amber shaded laquer to get the effect u want. It is usually used as a clear coat on top of refinished guitars to fake some age. It works just as well on pickguards.
And since its laquer, the color will darken further over time and exposure to UV light. And a good buffer will take some of the shine out of the paint.
