    Hi All,

    I have just got hold of (most of) a Japanese Epi ET-280 which needs to be refurbished and this is my first time in. The original (cherry red??) has been lovingly coated with a turgid battleship grey colour. If I want to get back to bare wood can I safely use something like Nitromors or should I use something a bit more gentle. Also, does anyone have any suggestions as to how to get a quality finish on the cherry red? Should I spray or hand paint then rub down.

    Cheers >>>>>>>>>>>>>>CW
