I building two tele styled guitars, and used General Finishes milk paints. I’ve been using polycrylic for seperation coats between color and glaze and haven’t been happy with the results. Now that it’s time for final topcoats I’m wondering what my other options are? Ive had great success with wipe on poly in the past as it lays down ultra flat. Can I use that or any other wipe of finish? Thanks!

Sure you can use wipe on poly. For years I have used GF WB on my basses. 6 coats. I love it. But if you’re comfy with the wipe on method, go for it.
