What to use to remove lacquer?

The older vintage instruments used nitrocellulose lacquers that are easily removed using boiling water with a bit of baking powder added. The epoxy lacquers on newer instruments, including the notorious Yamaha hard to remove lacquers can be removed using Klean-Strip Aircraft Paint Remover. I prefer the spray which I use outdoors when the weather is above 60 degrees. It is water soluble and easily rinses off with garden hose.

Thanks for the useful and fast reply. Hmmm...nitrocellulose, really? That could give new meaning to the expression "hot licks".
