Removing epoxy lacquer on a Saxophone

I have a YTS-23 Yamaha tenor sax that my parents got me back in 86 and I just found out that Yamaha used a clear baked epoxy lacquer on it. I would like to try to remove the rest of the epoxy so it can continue to tarnish. I've looked online and have found a couple of chemicals and/or solvents that could be used, but I was wondering in anyone had a better idea... Thanks

Methyl Ethyl Keytone or Xylene might work. Wear gloves and work outdoors. Both are very flammable and will strip your hands in short order.
You're going to have to strip everything for this to look right. It's going to ruin your pads, and strip all of the lube from the pins and springs. A complete tear down and rebuild is what you're looking at, IMHO.
The work would be worth it, if you're up to the challenge.

Thanks guys...I was hoping this could be done without having to completely disassemble the horn. Some of the laquer is coming off and I just want to "help" rest off....
