So I'm planning on taking the paint off of one of my basses, but I've never removed paint before.
What do I need to do for taking paint off? What is the best way to do it? What about after I take the paint off, I'm just looking for a natural finish. I assume you would have to take out electronics, but is it a must? I'm no good with electronics.

The bass is a Squire Mb-4 with a metallic paint finish.

Someone made a thread about removing the paint from their guitar. Look through the forum for it. Or you could use the sticky at the top of the forum.

And yes, you have to take out all the hardware, electronics, extra parts. Everything that isn't wood.
