So I was playing my new MIM strat last night, and turned the 2nd tone knob. It completely fell off. When i put it on again it wont stay? Is this a problem? Because I can still just turn the little metal thing fine. Do i really need that little piece of plastic over it?

Of course, it looks better and is handy for on the fly adjustments.

But, when you say, fell off, do you mean you yanked it too hard and it came off, or it actually fell off because of gravity? If the latter, take it back to the shop and say it's faulty, if the first... Take it back to the shop and say it's faulty?

My knobs are both fastened with a tiny allen screw, but they're metal, of the dome-variety.

No you don't need the plastic knob. If it doesn't bother you don't worry about it. If you want to replace it...they're really cheap.

I bought it on craiglist. And honestly, it felt better than almost all at my gc. And no, i was just turning it when it popped off. It actually looks kinda cool with it off.

Look at the top of the pot.

Grab a flathead screwdriver and gradually widen the gap between the two pieces on the tip of the pot.

Don't be too aggressive.

Put the knob back on.

If it's still loose, widen it more.

Repeat until it's a good fit again.

Can I sig that?

On topic: You only need a new knob as much as you want one. If you're not fussed about adjustability, all you ought ot worry about is looks. You don't need one, so don't worry.
