Repainting an Ibanez RG1550

I need to re paint my guitar I started to sand it and realized that its going to be a bigger job than anticipated (it looks like Ibanez tends to put on a lot of coats). Do a lot of people just repaint over the old finish or sand it down to the wood? I've never re painted a guitar so if someone could refer me to a link on how to; would be great. Thanks.

Oo looks like Mr Purple might be sending you his/a Ebook :P

You can just rub it down and paint over existing paint. Make sure you primer it after you've rubbed it down though.
