I have a really bad, cheap Washburn x20 guitar, so i figured I'd try to mod it in some way, for fun. I've stripped it down completely and taken off the neck, and I'm now in the process of removing the old finish, and it's a real pain in the butt. I'm sandpapering it, and I've even tried a shuffle sander, but the process is still horribly slow. I've spent a full day and I've only done 10-15 square inches. Please help me! What is the best way to do it?

Thank you!!!

I used machine sanders. I used a belt sander to get the top layer or paint off...then I just sanded the rest. Took me maybe an hour to sand the whole guitar. It was a Strat though

rough sand paper first, then medium grit, then get down to like the 1000 grit
The world doesn't revolve around you. If it does, beware. You're probably about to pass out drunk.

Really low grit sandpaper, think 60 or 80 grit on a palm sander.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Washburn guitars uses alot of coats of paint, and so it takes a while to strip them. It took me many hours with an electric sander to get it down all the way, then two more hours by hand with the horns. You are in for the long haul now though.
