Schatten Knob and Bushing Puller

About This Item

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:

Pulling bridge / tailpiece bushings out of a finished guitar body is hairy and ulcer-inducing under the best of circumstances. This little gizmo gives you fine control over the process and makes it a breeze. It's pricey, but if you're preparing to do something that has you looking at this product, chances are you will be happy you got it.


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...
