jsmith is partially right - it is NOT a PITA - it is a REAL PITA!!! -Getting the old finish off is extremely hard and a lot of work. Do a seach of this site - there are guys out there who can give you a professional job reasonably - or search the bone yards for another one. I did the wood on my 560 and it took me a month of evenings and week ends to get it right. The tricky part is not to sand to far as the zebrano wood is very thin and laminated to mahogany underneath - one slip in hand sanding and the mahogany shows through. Don't ask how I know - just believe me when I say REAL PITA.
