    Hi all, I would like to replace the knobs with high hats if at all possible.

    I have changed out knobs on my LP's with no problem. These don't seem to wanna pull off.

    Any ideas? Thanks

    Hi, the 2013 future comes with some chrome,knurled knobs a bit like you get on a Telecaster. I keep thinking of changing mine but then it looks more like everybody elses SG, Steinberg tuners excepted.
    Cheers

    If they're those type then there might be a set screw that holds them on.

    I use the same cloth that I wipe the strings down with.
    Just tuck it under the knob, wrap it around the post, and pull.

    But I also like the ESP tool... it's a great piece to keep in yer
    guitar case or in yer pick tray on top of the piano.

    oh yeah, and Witch Hats rock!
