    doing some bass renovation, but i can't seem to get the knobs off one of my basses.


    the knobs of my yamaha bb350 pulled off just fine.

    do some knobs not pull off? requiring something else?

    ill attach a pic of the bass that im having difficulty with. thanks a bunch
     
  2. I'm not sure about this particular bass, but on most of my basses the knobs are secured with a hex screw that needs to be loosened with an allanwrench.

    On one bass that I had, I had to pry the knobs of with a screwdrive- put the end of the scredriver in a rag so that it don't scuff up the bass or knobs
