there may be a screw under the back plate. The knobs on my Dean bass are the only ones that i've ever taken off and they just pull off. After you pull them off though they don't stay on too tight. Might wanna use some lock tight if this is how your knobs come off.

BE CAREFUL !!!!

If you plan on putting new ones on, be sure to push the pot on the back lightly enough so that the pressure isn't put all on the pot.

I made this mistake and I broke the screw holding the pot in place, now it's lose and makes a buzzing noise when I use it.

putting them on. (if you are)

Taking them off I'm pretty sure you should be just as careful simply because they can ruin the pots turny part *Real name escapes me*

probably when putting new ones on as it's impossible to reach underneath the knob and push down as you pull the knob up....you could take off the back plate and just hold the pot in place on that side while you do it though...can't hurt.
