I have an Epi LP standard that I'm considering refinishing. Has anyone found a chemical paint/ varnish remover that WILL NOT attack the binding on the body and fretboard??

Any thoughts would be appreciated..

My only thought is "Don't do it.".

I appreciate the sentiment, but after I bought the guitar...(shoulda looked at it closer...) I noticed some cracks in the finish at the neck joint. They looked pretty severe. However, after cleaning the REALLY thick finish at the neck joint, I've come to the conclusion that the joint is not compromised, that it was bad finish at the joint. Unfortunately, now I have some bare spots around the joint.. Good news is the joint seems fine.....Any thoughts as to how to patch the finish, ie stain and poly the nice fresh wood I have showing??
