Pretty sure it's a Polyester clear with a urethane based paint.

FWIW I was going to have one of those bodies refinished and I was told that since it was an Ibanez body paint stripper wouldn't work and it would cost an extra $100 to sand it down. If you find something that works let me know,I might try doing it myself. BTW Anyone know of a good guitar body refinisher around the Seattle area?

I have tried all kinds of different strippers. None of them seemed to work. The only thing that helped was a heat gun, a knife, sandpaper and a lot of spare time. Beware of the heat gun of you intend to use a transparent laquer. The wood is very easily burned. Here is mine:

You can send it to me. I charge $75.00 to strip a body.

Hey Lanzelot, that Radius body actually looks really neat burned like that. Very similar to a BSB.

The only body that I ever stripped was a 1995 RG570CT, and I did that hard, thorough way. Sandpaper, time, and some tendonitis. Getting under the horn curvers was the hardest part. Came out really nice though.
