I have a bass that needs to be stripped and refinished. It's ash under the horrid green paint - I can see a bit of grain through the paint.
What is the easiest way to remove it? It's a poly type finish I believe (it's an American made Tobias Renegade built by Gibson).
I'd like to have it a natural ash finish when all is said and done. Thanks.

Yup what he said ^^^

Make sure your work area is ventilated and/or you wear a respirator.
That stuff smells when you are heating it up.

Use a plastic putty knife or be really careful with a steel one - you can gouge the wood and then you are into repairs.

I just did my mim fender baja tele and it took all of 5 mins.
I did an epi sg a few years ago, it took closer to an hour.

Ok that sounds like a plan. Thanks.
