I'm trying to remove the controls from the pickguard, but I can't get the pickup selector switch through the pickguard on my Stratocaster without taking the plastic knob off of the selector. How do you get it off? It's stuck on pretty good.
You've got to just pull at it and wiggle it. They're hard to get off sometimes, but they do come off.
pull and wiggle, pull and wiggle. then do it again but harder. It will come off eventually
pull.....harder, better, faster, stronger
