If you painted the guitar with laquer paint yes you can use the clear laquer. But laquer doesnt work so well over other kinds of paint. With the super fine grits the surface scratches get really really small, you will be really surprised how smooth 2000 grit paper is. But it doesnt last long as it loads up fast and quits sanding. So will need several sheets. I dont use big pieces I cut it into small squares. But its still best to go over it after sanding with a polishing compound for a mirror gloss.

I've got a question. I'm ATM in the process of painting my guitar. I'm doing a Satin finish to it which at the moment is turning out fine but it'll need a buff up or a polish at the end. only thing is, will polishing it make it go too gloss like for what i want?

A satin finish will not gloss.

for satin don't buff it, just sand it with .0000 steel wool.
