    hello, i seen at a local shop a ernieball stingray with the "orange" finish,man its awesome looking!
    i was thinking of refinishing one of my lakland 55-01's in this same color/stain. couple questions;

    1-what color is the ernieball stingray finish called exactly?and can i purchase that at my local home center?paint store?
    3-what is the best way to remove my existing finish,i would like to use 100% chemicals to do this,no sanding...
    3- how do i get that factory finish,i mean that "thick" clear finish.what is used?
    i have a compressor with air gun,i am familiar with refinishing somewhat as i have done this with furniture.

    any info,thanx in advance.. :bassist:
