This is basic, I know, but this weekend when I was changing strings on my G&L M-2000, I thought I'd pull the battery cover. I've had the bass about a year and a half, and haven't ever changed the batteries. Figured I'd check the compartment and put a new set in, just in case. So I removed the two screws...and could not move the cover at all. I mean it doesn't budge.The fit is so tight in the body that I couldn't get a grip with a fingertip of fingernail to move it. I know I could grab a small flathead screwdriver and pry it out, but that will chip the finish. Curious, I did the same thing on the control cover and it pops off like it should... Am I missing something? Any ideas on what to use to pry it open without scarring my beautiful black burst finish?
