    When I striped mine, I did the old fashioned way, with sandpaper (10000 different grits) and STEEL WOOL, but my guitar was stained then laquered, so I found it pretty easy.

    I do know that if you go down to a comercial paint outlet ICI/Glidon, etc, (not a hardware/home depot, type of place), they have some pretty powerfull products that will do the job easily. In another movie I used to be a commercial painter and I've used most of those products and they work like a hot damned. The only problem is it's messy as hell, and the fumes will get you buzzed.

    As far as refinishing, I'd go
    1 sanding sealer (sanding between each coat)
    2 Oil, piant/stain
    3 Akrylic finish

    I would talk to a luthier first just to inquire about the tonal consequences of the type of paint/finish.

    Hope this helps, and make sure you use plenty of steel wool [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
