Well I just wanted to throw this in, I just "Soda" blasted one of my remodel jobs and it was cool to watch. The house had so much mold growing everywhere it was the only recourse. The soda is "Baking Soda" and it is allot less abrasive than sand BUT it took allot of wood off anyway, for me that was ok but you definitly do not wany to sand blast or any other blast.
You have recieved allot of good info, my 2 cents is that if you want the finish removed it takes elbow grease pure and simple, even strippers are not labor free. Well worth it though in the end, you will have something to be proud of. I am doing 2 strats over this winter, one will be Daphne blue with a maple neck and the second is shell pink with a rosewood neck, both will have great pickups and vintage aged hardware.
