I want to remove the paint job on my strat but there is a clear gloss finish that I can't sand off. How should I go about this?

get some more coarse sand paper (try 40-60) and an electric sander, trust me it can be sanded just takes a while

oh and if your lazy, not unlike my self, you could use a heat gun to get the paint off, but be careful because apparently it gives off toxic fumes and the like

yeah i was about to say, yes it will sand. it depends what is needed. hand sanding? your going to have a rough day. i recommend a vibrating sander to get the top heavy coat off. if that doesnt work...borrow a hand belt sander....but be careful.

oh yeah and an industrual paint stripper will literally melt it off.

i took the finish off a headstock the othr week in about 10 min PERFECTLY. some idiot literally took a brush and painted on thick black paint. look like garbage. this gunk my dad had looked like clear jelly. slobbed it on and almost immediately the paint was melting off.

A random orbital sander takes paint and finish off fairly easily. Just go slowly and carefully
