I had a Black , Fretted Precision bass. I removed the frets, and the neck is ready. But I have tried a lot to remove the black paint from the body, and I have found that even a strong paint remover wont do the job!! Is there anything good to remove this kind of finish?? I have sanded other basses, but it is a lot of work, since i do it by hand completely. (Dont have any machine for that). Please post anything that can help. Please advise of any good oils or products for protecting the Rosewood fretboard now , that it it Fretless.
