What type of paint should I use. Should i use water based paint or oil based? I want to paint my guitar. Not stain it. Does it even matter what paint u use? Also, once i do have the paint down what should i use as a clear coat. Should it be sometype of gloss or lacquer?
plz help my newbness in guitar modding

Car paint like Duplicolor, or nitro, either in a spray can from reranch.com, or sprayed from a gun(this is what I do).
I'm not very active here on UG currently.

Don't Mean to double post, but if i sanded all the way down to the guitar wood, would i have to reseal it?

yes you would.

and after the color coat and primer is set you do clear coat it

Is sealer considered a primer? or is there a sealer, then a primer, then a color, then a clear coat. is that how it goes?

what I mean is something like a sanding sealer, or a grain filler (http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Finishing_supplies/Fillers_and_putties/ColorTone_Waterbase_Grain_Filler.html)
followed by several coats of clear coat. BAsically this fills the grain of the wood before you start painting it colors, so that when you set your final coats of clear and prep for buffing you don't have to sand lots to take our the grain impressions.
