I am considering purcasing an Essex Jazz and doing a custom "paint" job to it. This means removing all of the hardware and sanding the whole body to reveal the grain underneath. I would then use some wood stain and varnish to make it look amazing. I would then put a white pickguard on it. Opinions on feasibility? I realize that it would take me forever to sand it, and I think I'm up for it. I could also use my dad's electric sander, but that's another topic. Thanks!
