I would recommend getting a spray system. If you already have a compressor you can get an inexpensive gravity-feed spray gun. Another option is a turbine driven HVLP system. Rockler has one on sale.

That way you could thin the lacquer, and control the spray pattern. I think 90% of common finishing problems could be solved with a good spray setup.

As far as sanding between coats I like to use 350 grit soft sanding sponges. Then I wet sand the final coat with a 1500 grit soft sponge.

Good luck!
