Removing pots on yamaha rbx170

I recently bought a beaten up yamaha rbx170 for a project bass. For the life of me i cant figure out how to remove the pots. I've tried all sort of movement to get the knobs off so i can take the pots out, but nothing seems to work. The closest thing to a solution ive got is someone suggesting"just break em off".

Can anyone help ?

If there's no screw or allen nut in the side of the knob try using a flat head screwdriver to lever them off. You might want to put a rag under the screwdriver to stop it scratching the body.

Why ther **** would you want to remove the pots? Theyre kinda useful.
