    I have an Epiphone 500 CCE (cedar top) Masterbuilt. Perfect except the top finish is horrible! Can I strip it and go mostly bare wood?

    Thanks!

    Finish work is not trivial, so if you don't know if you can do what your asking, I'd wonder if you could finish the job satisfactorily once started.

    That being presumptuously said, it's probably not a good idea to have a bare wood top. The wood needs a nominal amount of protection or it won't last. It'll wear quickly, stain easily, react to environment more readily, etc.
