    I was thinking of buying a rickenbacker 4001 that I found that someone has refinished. It appears like they painted the front white and left the back the natural finish. I was wondering if there is a way to remove the whit paint to get it back to the natural wood. How difficult would it be to refinish it in black? It wouldnt have to look too great, just decent. Could I do it myself? If not how much should I expect to pay for a budget refinishing from a shop? Thanks a lot.
