Hi!
I got a Fender Stratocaster Mexico which now is approximately 15 years in my possession and, well, it has the scars to prove it.
Nothing big, but the volumeknobs are worn down an yellowish and I really like to replace the pickguard, which leaves one problem:
The removal of said knobs.
What's the trick?
Really, do I not pull strong enough????
I don't want to damage anything (except for the knobs)
If anybody has the slightest hint I would really appreciate it.
Thanks.

Screw or pull off, if pulling doesn't work try screwing

try to pull of slightly with screw and if its hard try to use a contact oil press many times then wait a little so it will be easy .

You take somekind of soft-to-touch but strong cloth and wrap around a knob. Make sure that the cloth goes under the knob, Then you pull as much as you can, but in increments. Sometimes they are glued on firmly so you have to pull as hell. Nothing will happen to the pot, but be carefull...
