Dude, that guitar looks great. Removing the original stain seems gutsy, but it turned out perfect. Do you know how much of a process it was to remove the finish on the guitar? Reason I ask is that I'd like to find a cheapy and mess around with it. Sort of a mod-practice guitar.

I just rough sanded the entire body, left the neck finish alone... The stain is gnarly... and it goes pretty deep in some places. There are a few places where the stain went very deep, deeper than I wanted to chase, so if you look close there are a few spots of grain where the stain still lives... but just tiny spots. It's lookin fine.

Hmmmmmm .... mine had deep pock marks on the back that took a ton of sanding to remove I believe ..... The finish process a apply finish/sand over and over .....
Maybe Bri will chime in
