If you have trouble finding high grit sandpapers I've gotten mine at automotive stores. The hardware stores around here don't have them.
As far as getting the finish glossy, if you want it that way, since you're probably putting oils on it from your skin or buffing it with your clothing pay attention to what you're doing and maybe do that. You can also check with wood refinishers and see what they say. I just snooped around online and something to check is whether it's an oil finish or poly finish. That would make a difference what you do with it, too. You might just get by with hand buffing it with a wax of some sort. Nothing that will build up, but just give it a nice glow. French hand-rubbed finish is what I saw was done on violins.
Hope that helps a little.
