I wouldn't mind a naked body, but the Basswood I understand is soft. Also, the grain is bland and who knows how many pieces are used. So, how 'bout I just remove all the paint off the backside rather than under the Strat style pickguard and cavities? That's actually more surface area. BTW, it's about a $400 Strat copy, no value concerns here. Appreciate any comments on any removal results.
