How would I go about doing this? What kind of companies do this sort of thing?

Sorry I meant to get the paint off. Like, in industrial paint stripper kinda stuff. Ive heard some companies dip doors and things to get off finishes and paint, and you can get your guitar dipped.

I have heard of a pickup mod that involves dipping the pickup in paraffin wax to reduce microphonic noise, maybe that's what you mean. It's not that hard, you just melt the wax in a can and then dip the pickup in it and then take it out.

Whenever I clean my guitars, my family wonders why it smells so good; I say that I exude a fresh citrus scent from hidden orifices.

Power sander will do it in no time with no damage to the guitar.

The paint say on a car door is much thinner than the paint used on a guitar. And cant imagine being dipped in such nasty chemicals would be good for a wood body.

Paint stripper works fine as far as removing certain types of paint. Others you will struggle with forever and still not get it all off.
#11
I would just recommend you sand off the paint. It is simple, and relatively easy. And it doesn't involve caustic substances.

Yeah, just what ever you do, get a power sander. you're in for a hell of a job hand sanded.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Oh yeah, when I wanted to change the color of my old guitar, no power sander was available, so I did it all by hand and it took forever to strip down the finish.

if you're not looking to re-stain the guitar, then all you really need to do is scuff the outer clearcoat enough for some mechanical adhesion. then you can sand to ~400 where you'll be able to spry and clearcoat on a smoother surface.
