I am guessing these are pulled off, just want to check before I go shopping around for what should be my last mod to this bass.

New pickups ordered (stock are ok, it surprises people how good this bass sounds, but I am hoping to elevate this toy a bit more, rather than shell out thousands for a custom bass in this scale. Fingers crossed that I can put them in properly.

Again, the stock are not bad, these are a hair more precise and reliable (maybe it is psychosomatic). Also they look nice. Only a wee bit of sanding/smoothing one of the holes, other wise they fit right in.

I even ordered a gator case for it, I'll let you know how it fits.

The knobs on a Mikro guitar should pull off. The pots used in this bass are a splined/split shaft and regular push on knobs will work. If you wanted to use some knobs with a set screw, you could even go as far as changing the pots out for solid shaft pots.

Hope this helps,

Yes it does, it could only be more helpful if you came over and pulled them off :)
Think I am going to need knobs with numbers on them, especially after I put the new pickups in.

For anyone that stumbles onto this...
I used a leather thong and carefully pulled them up. Worked great.
