Is it possible to get rid of ultra-fine cleaning scratches?

I've painted and repainted cars many times, and have worked with polishing metal as well. I say this because I'm not inexperienced in getting mirror-like finishes.

I'm about to sell a guitar, and I'd like it to look as good as possible. I've taken some Meguiars rubbing compound and scratch remover, and have gotten rid of the major scratches. What I'm left with are the ultra-fine scratches that are from cleaning (and also from removing the deeper scratches).

I don't want to risk going too deep with the polishing. Is there any product that will remove those ultra-fine scratches in a nitrocellulose finish, or should I just be happy with what I got?

Thanks for any replies.

Meguiars Swirl Remover and finish with carnauba. Don't use any silicon based finish wax on nitro.

This is how I finished my Studio build. Have some pics in my sig link below
