PAINT EXPERTS! i need help please!

hey, i just refinished my strat neck, i got some amber colored spray paint and painted the neck to give it a vintage look. it looks REALLY GOOD. so after that i clear coated it about 4 coats, one a day. Now it is very glossy, and i can see the gloss under proper angles under light. my guitar teacher told me to sand it after with really fine sandpaper, then use a polishing compound. im a little confused. if i sand it, wont the clear come off? and also what compound should i use and where could i get it? THANK YOU

if you use really really fine sandpaper it will just smooth out the clearcoat not strip it off. then use a rubbing compound to shine it to perfection.
