How do you take off the tuning knobs to a Gibson SG Special? They have no screw to take them off and I really dont want to take it to a shop.

Here's what the knobs look like.

get some pliers or a wrench. see the hexagonal washers on top? unscrew them. they are threaded into the back of the tuning machine. ten pop them out.
#3
but I want to keep the rods there and put Fender Squire tuners on

Edit: They dont have any washers, its like they molder the knobs around the rod that goes into the tuner.

Take a hammer and break them off.
I HIGHLY doubt you can get Fender tuners on it. Those tuners are made from plastic and are melted into place onto the rods while Fenders are screwed on. You'd have to change the whole mechanism.
It's better to burn out than to fade away.
