I picked up a LP Jr. doublecut with a headstock crack on the cheap, and after repairing it, plan on doing a refin in TV White. It's currently Worn Cherry, which, when I took the lacquer thinner to it, wasn't coming off that cleanly since it's a stain instead of a solid color.

I test sanded a bit on the body and that seems to be much easier in this case than stripping (If someone knows of a better approach, I'm all ears!). My question is, short of sanding enough off that the factory grain filler is removed, is there a way to strip it (the filler) out of the wood to open the grain in preparation for the TV finish?

Thanks!
