Hello! I have a question for you good people. My strat is finished in like a walnut red color and im kinda tired of that color.

And i am wondering if i sand down the paint can i leave it unfnished?

And what Kind of grit sandpaper do i need?

You'll need to put varnish or wax on it afterwards, sweat doesn't mix well with unfinished wood.
