i am thinking of doing my own custom guitar, and i was wandering how i need to sand the original paint off? is it jsut a matter of time with a sander, or is there more to it?

Belt sander, but only if you really know how to use it. Or you'll be shredding and I'm just talking about playing ridiculously fast.

Or you can get sandpaper and a sanding block which will take you about 40 minutes for each side. I used Grade 60 and Grade 80 to remove the paint off my guitar.

JUst sand with the grain and you will be find. It will takw you some time.

is there a way to make it so i can make the paint a really satin looking finish (like an SG goth)?

yeah use black matt paint and then use a satin clear coat instead of a gloss one
