    Is this easy to do? I recently tried out a second hand p bass which I really liked but i'd like to change the pickguard colour when i buy it....is this a simple operation? How do the knobs come off?

    Yes...Disco...it's a fairly easy task .

    All that is involved is :

    - removing the p/g screws.....
    - removing the 2 knobs and input jack bolt.

    The 2 knobs should have a small 'set' screw , look on the side of the knob.A very small flat head screw driver should work. Loosen it a bit...then the knob should pull off easily.Once the knobs are off.....unscrew the 'flat bolts' ( 3 ) that are holding on the pg.

    Very Simple......don't lose any parts !! :)

    If you have any further Q's....feel free to PM me.

    Good Luck !!!

    i had a squier p-bass and i don't think the knobs had set screws in them... if your knobs don't have screws holding them on, just pull them off. Keep in mind that you'll also need a wrench to unscrew the potentiometers from the pickguard.
