even after using 3000 grit wet/dry and a pro polishing machine with the correct compound i'm seeing fine scratches on a cellulose finish. any ideas on a good burnishing cream ?. I tried a swirl remover [ known as T-CUT over here in the uk ] but that was WAY too abrasive.

 You don't really have to work all that hard with the sanding IF you run through all of the Micromesh in order. From your comments, you appear to be having  a much tougher time getting a slick finish than I've ever had using this process. 

 I actually like the micromesh pad and just use my fingers with water to sand things. I keep a spray bottle handy to mist the area I'm working and I keep a bowl of water to dip the pad into to clear the "paper".  I don't work the micromesh hard so much as I try to work it even. I will end up with a white slurry as I work which I wipe off with a soft cloth before moving on to the next grit. When I finish, the finish is only the slightest bid flat and the swirl remover finishes it off. 

 Last guitar I finished, I sat in front of my TV and watched a movie as I did it.
