but what is the best way to go about removing the volume/tone knobs from my les paul and putting new ones on?

i'm hoping someone has a safer way than jamming a screwdriver under the edge and prying it upward. that's what i have done in the past but this is my first gibson and i'd rather not mess it up.

eh try your thumb, middle n index finger to try and pry it up (if your fingers can fit under the knobs) personally this is how I do it with my Flying V

or put something on the wood to protect it and then use the screwdriver over it and underneath the knob like you have been doing

or a pick. try using a pick.

oh, and there would only be unnoticable scratches UNDER the knobs... so...

i sure hope you havent been tugging at your knob for to long...

Slid a piece of cloth under the knob, try to wrap it around the pot, and pull up. Should just pop off.
