well i was on project guitar seeing how to take the paint off a guitar body using chemicals... but it never actually says WHAT chemical to use. Is it just regular paint stripper? or is it something special that i won't be able to find at home depot?

les paul copy thread?
no but if ur guitar is painted it will come off with paint thiner, there is a layer on top of the wood that should stay on thats what mine is, mine was a first act body, but it still had a laquer and paint top, the paint remover wont mess the wood up in any way tho so as long as its paint it shall be fine

I remember hearing something about airplane stripper... I'm going to try to look it up, but I remember it being a used to strip the paint on a guitar to get it ready to be primed then airbrushed.

wow that stuff looks pretty gnarly... if it's all the same to you i think i will just use regular paint stripper. the guitar probably didn't even cost as much as one can of that stuff...

True, I was just throwing it in there. I'm sure paint stripper will do the trick. The chem I tossed in there was for absolute perfect stripping with minimal sanding, "the airbrusher was lazy" Also it was done indoors. So fumeless was a must.

You can get airplane stripper at an automotive store for $10 a can. If your guitar is covered in polyurethane then its the only way to go (at least if you don't want to be stripping for 4-5 days.)

*Starts stripping for 4-5 days* .... Then again I think the stripper music would get old by day 2.... but oh well.
