Hmmm... it seems to be the case with Schecter (or at least, my C8) that the clear coat + paint layer is rather easily removed with paint stripper.

The primer under it all is another matter though. Ugh.

I look forward to see the results of your soon-to-be labour of love!

I think you need to ensure that the primer/black stain is evenly removed or else you'll have an uneven stain.

Man, that finish (right after you started stripping the finish) looks like it's living and someone took some bites in it. If I could have a finish like that on purpose, that would be amazing.

I sold it. Someone on this board bought it and supposedly finished it in white. I haven't seen any pics.
