hammer with a claw on the back of the clawhammer.

put a towel folded on the body of the guitar and hook the claw under the tailpiece pegs. use those pegs to remove all the peg holders out.

I just finished my LP Special II, turned out great. The 3x3 "Green Keystone" tuners from GFS are surprisingly good quality. After the initial string stretching I haven't had to retune the guitar yet and we're going on 2 weeks now.

I bet its slightly out of tune.
Not even my fender MIA can retain tuning for more than 1 week without having to tune a little bit.
