How would you sand in between the frets?
I have one I want to remove the poly and refinish it with nitro.
I did this.
It's a PITA.
Stripping poly is not so difficult, but flatsanding/wetsanding/polishing/buffing etc between the frets after
applying the nitro is fiddly and time consuming. And not easy to get a really good, flat finish.
The difficult bit is actually sanding consistently right up to the frets, so you get an even finish. It can also then be tricky with buffing/polishing to not have your polish gunked up with stuff off the frets themselves.
I started a thread on TDPRI about this very subject, might be helpful for you to have a look at:
(I think that's the link - TDPRI is blocked at my work, ST isn't.....so I can't look on TDPRI right now)
