Damn, that's a lot of paint. Latex or oil?(sorry, I couldn't resist)
I remember reading in Kendrick's books that the sticky side of tape actually works very wel to remove paintl, may well be worth a try.
I'll try and find the chapter and see what kind of tape he recommended.

I had a friend that picked up a brown Fender Deluxe that someone had painted black.. He couldn't get all the black paint off of it so he ended up painting the tolex brown and it looked great.

If it is latex paint, you might try a product called "Krudcutter" which you would find at a Paint store. Y]They also have a line of Graffiti removers that might work. Try it on a nonvisible spot before proceeding. I have had success with the Krudcutter by applying it , using a toothbrush to agitae and loosen paint and then wiping off the paint with a rag. I imagine with black, it will take several reapplications and much patiece. Good luck.

Mostly latex some gloss spray paint. I used Goof Off over a gallon and a scrub brush. Wiped most of it off into rags then I went over it with Goof again and used a pressure washer for the remaining paint. Be careful with the pressure washer too close and you'll tear up the Levant.
