Should I sand this harp, and if so, how?

I'd like to restore the original appearance of a 70 year old musical instrument that was spray-painted black some 40 years or so ago by the fellow that I bought it from. Is this something that can be accomplished with sandpaper and patience?

The instrument in question: a Deagan Vibraharp
. Just the frame was painted over, and I'm only interested in restoring the cream and black outer trim with the logo, so the surfaces in question will be easy to get to with some disassemble.. I imagine some fine sandpaper combined with great patience and care could do the trick, no? If you've done this sort of thing before any advice on what type/grain of sandpaper to use would be great.
