Started sanding the paint of my old bass body today so that i can repaint it
and underneath the paint there's this orange layer and then the wood
i've left most of the orange layer on but it's come off in some places

a) what is it and what purpose does it serve?
b) should i leave it on or sand it off?
Rockin' shit

perhaps a primer? It may be difficult to take it all off, but it'll be necessary to repaint it.

no, it won't, as long as you sand what you have to 400 grit, you can paint over top.

Shwiggity.

it doesn't matter if its orange, black or rainbow.. assuming that you've sanded it to at least a 400 grit, then you're ready to prime.

It's probably some of the heavy duty sealer they put on before the primer. Prime it and paint it. Let's see progress pics too.
