    If you have a finish and you decide you want a naturale one, would it be okay to sand off the finish and everything? Maybe get something later to make it glossy? I have Nato wood.

    Yeah, I'm in the middle of a project like this now and just a word of advice its a major pain. Guitar finish is tough stuff. If you don't have access to spray equipment you can re finish it with danish oil and wax and it will have a semi gloss to it.
