If you are only sanding off the paint it shouldn't make too much of a difference

I'm a non-regular regular old user.
As already said, unless you're going to be snading half the body off the sound should remain unaffected. Make sure you remove all the electronics before you do it though, I know of people who forget and mess it all up >.<
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

would sanding the boady of my bass change it's sound in any way?

You must really be a dropout. Was spelling "body" too difficult and stressful for you?

And the answer is no.
It wont affect the sound as the others said but try to put something on to protect the body because it can get ugly in no time try to use that stuff they put on natural finish basses n guitars so it dont get ugly too fast.
