Removing vital silver finish from RG2570

So I really love this guitar but the finish is not my thing. I also have always wanted a natural RG and I think this would end up being my perfect guitar.

I have a few questions regarding the process and what I may find underneath. Has anyone else done this before with this specific finish? I have lots of differently powered sanders and the know how.

I know the body is basswood and likely 3 piece. Does anyone know how different the pieces will look?
