painting a guitar

I have sanded down one of my guitars, in order to paint it, but I am stuck. What kind of wood sealer and primer is the best? I am not sure what kind of wood is laminated on top, but it is light. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm sure the more experienced people here will chime in, but regarding the sealer, if you intend to finish in poly, don't use sanding sealer. Poly will peel off.
