On closer inspection, the pink Trashcaster guitar had been painted over with a thick layer of what appeared to be household gloss paint.

Sanding didn't work well on this so I used some general purpose paint stripper to remove the paint and start again. Beneath the white were traces of some original red paint.
A few layers of stripper and a scraper removed most of the paint. The result is a gory pink and white mess that looks like something from a slasher flick. Very suitable for Halloween!
