Best Chemical Paint Stripper?

Recommended Posts

Can someone recommened to me a proven quality chemical paint stripper for the use of removing the finish on standard clear coated guitars?

I've tried Nitromors paint and varnish remover with absolutely rubbish results (left on for over 40 mins still didn't do a thing). Hence, i've been sanding for about 5 hours today ;(

I'm in the UK, so will either need a web address that I could order from, or maybe a brand that someone has used that I could get from a hardware shop, any idea's?

DOn't know Byron...I made a post in another thread where I swore by Nitromors....worked a treat on a nitro finish on an acoustic....if you do too big an area that could be the problem....

Don't know why it's not working for you

..However...help is at hand (UK based) - this company offer superb paint stripper products which are used in the Aero industry and are available to the general public....apparently, the products were so good and demand so high..they made a website especially for it..

Fantastic, I shall give that a try on my next body (got three more to do ;(

I'll let you know how it goes.

With the nitromors, it might be that the jackson (rhodes) that I was stripping had a strong lacquer that it couldn't get through, but i'll give the aero industry a go and see how that turns out.

failing I think i'll use a heat gun, all that sanding is giving my carpal tunnel syndrome :-)
