Question stripping the RG7321 ?

Im thinking removing the paint off my Ibanez Rg 7321
Since i bought it if removed the neck pickup,tone knob,& 5-swicth.
I got a B/W/B custom picguard like dinos rgs from jeannies pickgaurds
If stripped it i would leave it natural with maybe a clear coat on it.
OPINIONS PLEASE ??????????????????

Get a power sander for the top coat And maybe even some of the paint if you wish. You could stain it after you've removed everything.

Re: stripping the RG7321 ?

basswood axes typically don't look to good with natural finishes. the wood is very white. being an indonesia rg7321, i doubt the quality of the wood is great, as well. ibanez has crappy finishes, so a heat gun would more than likely take off most of the finish. finish it off with a palm sander.
just drop the pickguard on it and call it a day, or at least check it out with the pickguard before you get TOO invoved with it.
