Hi everybody.. I have the desire of refinishing my bass which has a quilted maple top with a transparent color and a hi gloss finish.. I would like to paint or dye it to another transparent color with a satin finish, so.. Do I need to usea paint remover or just sand it? If I need a poaint remover, what should I use? What kind of paints or oils are used for transparent colors with satin finishes? If anyone has a webpage with everything explained with would be really helpful.. Thanks people.
