    I am currently modding my PRS S2 Standard 22 with US electronics. I take that the stock import PRS knobs will not fit on US pots. Will the US PRS knobs I see on eBay fit US pots?

    Thanks!

    The S2 comes with US knobs.

    Now... any tips on how to remove them? They're so tight! I'm scared that I might break something.

    Once I had to use a golf divot repair tool. I put a playing card underneath it.
    Another trick is to wrap string underneath the knob and pull hard.
    Whatever you try, be very careful and take it slow.

    I use two spoons and a polishing cloth.

    I take a polishing cloth and put under the kobs and use the spoons to pry the knob up evenly. Just be careful not to slam the spoon handle into the top.

    Shoe string. Put it between the knob and the body. Wrap it once. Pull up on the shoe string and knob at the same time.

    Crowbar and a hammer works. Usually.

    Don’t force it! Use a bigger one!

    Take an old t-shirt or thin cloth towel, slip it under the knob, gather, twist and pull.

    If I had a bigger one, I’d be more popular.

    Exactly! Because a bigger one changes the amount of effort needed to generate the force to lever off the knob. It’s just physics!

    Exactly!

    But is it Leaver, or Levver?
