    E-Z Strip or some other chemical paint remover. Check your local hardware store.
     
  3. Yeah, this is also a question I'm a little interested in considering my ibanez is also covered in paint. Only surface tempra paint though (How strange?). You can chip it off without hurting the finish, but is there any easier way to do it to insure the finishes saftey?

    As said, just use that heavy-duty paint STRIPPER. Don't confuse it with paint thinner. Also, I would reccomend wearing gloves- this stuff is acid, and it burns like hell when you get it on skin.
