I bought a Yamaha RBX375 about a year ago, and initially i really liked the silver finish, but now i'm on the verge of selling it as i can't stand it. I'd love to keep it as it sounds good and plays great, but i really have no idea how to sand it down. It has a solid Alder body (but i have no idea what Alder looks like) but it looks like the silver paint might be quite thick. I also have no idea as to what kind of varnish or laquer to put on it if i successfully manage to sand it. Any help at all would be very much appreciated, cheers folks.
