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:
5/16-18

Real great tool but needs a very little improvement for bushes

By

I like it. Every knos was pulled of. But when it comes to bushes a little improvement is helpful. First I put some painters tape onto the body to prevent the finish from scratches (I do the same when pulling knobs very close to the body). Then I have a set of thin shims made from plywood. The outer diameter is a little bit larger than the puller. In the center is a hole with the diameter of the bush to pull. So the shim is pressed directly against the wood of the body when pulling and prevents from upcoming chips of the body.

Removes Knobs Easily

I bought a 2012 Start that had the knobs frozen or hard to turn because of the transparent plastic cover that comes on the pick guard was jammed under the knobs. This remover popped them right off. Strongly suggest.

Not Perfect but Still Pretty Darn Good!

Had opportunity to use this device on several types of knobs. While it works “perfectly” for knobs that have enough clearance under them to slip the device, I ran into several knobs on guitars that were pushed on so far down there wasn’t any space under knob to slide the device under it. This doesn’t happen often but it seems import guitars tend to have knobs that get pushed down onto their potentiometers that there is zero clearance under them (bad news because the knob tends to make a ring into the finish.) I was still able to pull them but I couldn’t use this device. Just thought I’d call attention to this little issue. Gibson and Fender knobs tend to have enough clearance so usually no problem there. It’s those darn import guitars!

I used this puller to remove a couple of bridge bushings from a guitar body. You have to be careful
that you don't mar the finish as there is no rubber padding on the bottom of the steel part. Also, the tool I received had burrs on the steel parts so be careful not to cut yourself.
Other than those comments the tool works great.

Pricey, but pulled bushings slick as a whistle without a mark on my finish. If you gotta do it, you gotta buy it.

The tool gets better with use, as we make parts to go with it!

It will pull studs from guitars, and knobs off guitars, amps, & radios (check for set screws). This thing will rip apart pots if the knobs are held on with set screws. If the set screws are corroded in, that may be the only way to yank them out! I upped this from 4 stars to 5. Mine did need an extra washer, and some extra bolts to pull oddball studs. It's just at home on the guitar bench as it is on the amp bench! It gets under those soft small Ibanez knobs, no problem! It pulls out tail piece & bridge studs, no problem!
