hey i have this mexican P, i bought used some years ago. It was black with rosewood. i figured out it sounded very nice. A few years back i found out that the black MiM have this thick plastic coating, so i removed it. Now it been left to dry and has got a new antiquity 2 in it. I think its time to sand it nicely and paint it. I like a kind of vintage white. the body however is not pretty: its alder at least 3 pieces. Some kind of epoxypaint or something? thanks..
