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:

Knob and Bushing Puller

I wish I had one of these years ago. Truly an artisan tool.

My only suggestion for a future upgrade would be an option to use a plastic adapter for pulling knobs as the metal one can scratch a finish if you aren't very careful when placing it under the knob skirt.

Worth having if you like your finish and knobs

The tool is simple enough, but the little extra details make it much easier to use and with great results. The bottom of the cylinder is lined with a silicone ring that cushions your finish-- that's a nice touch. Very easy to remove knobs and bushings in a controlled, casual way.
