Preference. I dunno. I'm using the info that I've seen in all the build reports and how-to threads from Stewmac and here. Quite repetitive, actually.

1. remove absolutely all paint from the guitar
-can be done with sand paper, paint stripper, heat gun, or a combination or the three
2.sand down to a smooth surface with progressively finer grits
2b. some folks use sanding sealer before the primer. i dont.
3.spray a coat or two of primer.
4.wet sand with fine grit
5.color coats, wet sanding lightly inbetween coats to get a good surface
6. clear coats, and let dry for a while

on the guitar i just built i used Rustoleum multipurpose spray
topped with Rusto clear coat
ive seen Krylon indoor/outdoor used
ive also seen automotive paints used
a common clear coat is DEFT, but even though its a nice clear coat, it can often react badly with your paint, depending on the forumal. always test spray a piece of wood with your paints to be sure
