Have you ever had to replace any of the knobs/dials? If so, is it easy?

Mine are starting to fall off now, not surprising, 17 years old. So I bought new ones coz the old ones just fall off straight away.

Any tips or anything?

Cheers.

TS, just make sure you get the solvent for the glue you're using first (if that's what you're using) so you can sort out any mistakes easily.

Yeah, change the strings. On an AMP.

Anywho... I've heard that you can (very gently) pry the knob posts apart, as they are a split design and not solid. Do this before you put the new knobs on and they'll stay on better.

Let me know how it goes, will ya. I've got some new ones coming soon too. Just remember - if you are going to try prying apart the two slits on the knob shaft, do it VERY carefully. If they break, you're screwed and have to replace the pots themselves (as I'm going to have to do)

Bummer, it looks like the guy I bought it off blue tac'd them on , they lasted quite long tho, I bought it like 3 years ago. I'm gunna have to clean the shafts up before anything else. I'm guessing you just stick glue in the actual dial, align them and stick in back on the shaft? I'm a total n00b at this lol.

Um... no. Don't you see the strings and stuff on the 5150 head? It's a guitar/head combo.
