I would imagine you just mask off the neck joint, the pickups, and bridge, take the strings off, and remove the knobs then mask the pots. should be fine after that.

Be sure to rape the blue note (augmented 4th). Rape it hard and exploit it like the skank it is.

I'm in the middle of redoing an Ibanez unknown model... Right now i'm sanding off the old paint job, then it's gonna get a matte or glossy black. Basically, just sand off the old finish and paint before you do anything, you'll thank yourself later.
