    Gibson Les Paul Future

    Hello. Thanks for allowing me in this great forum. I have a nice Les Paul Future with its original metallic dome knobs and i haven't been able to remove them. These dome knobs aren't just like others with a side screw, they have none and therefore it would make sense they could be removed just like in most Gibson guitars however i'm afraid to cause any damage. Does enyone here has removed the stock dome knobs from a Gibson Les Paul Future?

    MOST Gibson knobs I am familiar with are just pressed on to the split shaft.

    I find the easiest way to remove them is to wrap one of those cheap plastic bags under them and pull.

    The bag has some give so if it rips use another couple of wraps.

    I have never screwed one up using this method.

    Some prefer a shoelace, but the bag won't damage them for sure.
