This must-have "two-in-one" tool from Schatten Design applies a steady, controlled pull to safely remove them.

Stubborn hard-to-remove guitar knobs?
The Knob and Bushing Puller's clear acrylic housing has a rubberized base to help protect the guitar's finish. Includes hardware to easily extract Gibson, Schaller or Gotoh bridge and tailpiece stud bushings, without damaging the guitar.

For just removing standard knobs, consider a simple Knob Puller.

Tailpiece bushing removal tip:
In some cases, especially with Gibson guitars, the tailpiece bushings are installed before the guitar is finished. To avoid chipping the finish, we recommend scoring the bushing with a sharp knife. For stubborn bushings, careful heat from a soldering iron will help break them free.

Instructions and bolts for pulling various threads are included:

There is no substitute!

At first I balked at the price. But after changing out bridge and tailpiece hardware on a couple of guitars in just a few minutes I knew I made the right decision. You really don't want to use anything else when you're pulling old hardware off any guitar with studs in the body.

Just buy it

I pulled Floyd Rose bushing with this in under 10 mins without wrecking my guitar. You may only use it once. Maybe, you'll use it all the time. Once you use it, you'll know that it's the right tool for the job and you would have gladly paid 3 times the price because it worked that well and it was that easy...

Perfect For The Job

I never had to pull a bushing from a Les Paul before so I wasn't sure how to go about it until I contacted a tech at SM. He suggested the product, I bought it since I trust their staff completely and sure enough it worked like a charm.It's a bit pricy but it worked.

Works Perfectly

This puller works perfectly, allowing you to remove all kinds of knobs with ease and without damaging anything. Expensive, but you get what you pay for.

This tool is simple to use and works perfectly. I used it to pull the bushings from a Les Paul, and I was a little nervous about it. The instructions are good, and this is a very solid tool. No issues at all. If you need to pull bushings, this is well worth the money.

Mightily Handy Gizmo

One of the best tools ever produced, really! Made pulling out bushing studs glued hard into the body of a Les Paul Custom a breeze! Lack of an additional washer for larger calibre screws is a small nuisance, but can be easily remedied by visiting a local DIY store. Other than that, this is what you need - no point in torturing yourself and risking a dinged finish the old fashioned way. And the delivery via DHL was blazing fast, especially since it was international! Cheers StewMac!

Buy It!

After shearing the original zinc stud off trying the put a screw in upside down and screw the stud back in until the bushing pushes itself out method - I bought this... Got a nut on the broken stud, got this tool around it, pulled the bushing right out! very strong, buy it!

Wow, Worth Every Penny!

I was hesitant to throw down this many dollars for what looks like a very simple tool (the photos are less than impressive and don't do this tool justice). After wasting a number of hours trying to build my own and marring the top of my les Paul build, attempting to remove the bridge and tailpiece bushings, I coughed up the money and ordered the knob and bushing puller.
It arrived two days later, I opened the package, put it together and had all four bushings out in 5 minutes!!! Wow, what a great tool, it's worth every penny!
Way to go Stew-Mac, you've amazed me again!! My Favorite Company!!
