How do you get a high gloss finish on a guitar?

to provide a high gloss finish (while making a guitar), first make sure there is no orange peel, or any bumps in the initial color coats of the finish. there should be about 4-5 coats of the said color finish on the guitar. sand the color lightly, and apply the gloss lacquer, about 5-6 coats. Sand the finish with 400, 1000, and 2000 grit sand papers in that order. you should see some of the shine start in this, but not in the mirror- like gloss usually seen on high gloss finishes. finally, take some wax and a buffer, and buff the sanded finish until it is buffed to a mirror-like sheen.
