    I'm sanding down a guitar and repainting it, but the process of sanding is going real slow. (Doing it by hand.) What is the quickest way to remove a finish from a guitar? Cheapest way if possible would be appreciated too, I'm still an unemployed teenager. :)

    Lighter fluid and a match.


    Seriously, I'd try a gel-type paint stripper for wood, which you can find at most hardware stores.
