So I've decided to get some waterslide decals for my guitar and I would like to make them semi-permanent and I need a good nitro clear coat so the decals stay in place.

I did an 2 hour research on the subject but to failed any specific spray can I should get.

My guitar's finish is Poly.

What is a good nitrocellulose transparent clear paint I should get?

Lacquer over poly, while possible, isn't really a good idea. It will shrink, crack and yellow over time, ending up looking like crap, and there's no chemical bond so peeling and adhesion failure is a very real concern.

I don't think that's what you want, based on your other posting?

Doesn't sound like what I would want. But there are some Poly lacquers I thought?

Or the ones that don't interfere with Poly finish. I am not sure hence that's why I'm asking

Just spray a polyester clear coat on top and be done with it. There's really nothing special here.

Is it okay coat the stickers only or do I have to cover the entire body?

Assuming your current finish is glossy, it should blend and you shouldn't need to do the entire thing.

Alright thanks for your help!
