I have a 1970 Saduo Yairi Classical guitar. It's got a solid spruce top with laminated Indian Rosewood back and sides. AFAIK, they are finished with some sort of poly finish.

I would advise against doing any sanding on a laminated guitar (or any guitar for that matter) but that's just me. If you were to strip it, you might consider using some form of chemical stripping, and then perhaps fine steel wool to prevent thinning the wood. this is especially important with a laminated guitar. I've seen some where the owners sanded through the outer laminate. It's not pretty.

They are a very nice instrument and belong to a different Yairi series that the other one...I forget the initial of the other Yairi company.
