Refinishing Epi Non-reverse Tbird? (pics)

I've got this 90's Epiphone Non-Reverse Thunderbird (think Mike Watt) that I picked up on a whim a few years back but doesn't get much use. I've never really been a huge fan of sunbursts, so I'm thinking of stripping and re-finishing in either Re-Ranch black, vintage cream, TV yellow or my girlfriend's choice of inca silver. Having never stripped a guitar finish before, I'm wondering whats the best method? Just a plain ol' sanding block and paper? I've spent a good 3-4 months trying to figure out what type of finish came on these, but I've yet to find any useful info. Body is mahogany, if that matters.

My digicam is on the fritz, but here are some pics of someone else's bass. Mine looks exactly the same.
