i recently got a crapy squier bullet and im repainting it, this would be my first time painting a guitar and i know that first i have to srtip the paint off which i did, but now i found what i think is bare wood but im not sure...it looks like wood with a coat of something on it. I wanna know if i have to sand that off (i wanted to put rosewood stain on the guitar and then a clear coat or garnish)

If I remember correctly, most Squier Bullet Strats are made of plywood and the stuff on top of the bare wood is the thick basecoat/primer used.

If you're staining it, although I'm not sure why, yes you'll have to sand all the way to the bare wood. It'll be an excellent learning experience. Also, check out the various mods/builds in this sub-forum. I got lots of my info and questions addressed in the various threads. Lots of savvy builders/modders here. Good Luck!
