I had a Sadowsky pre put in my Fender Marcus Miller jazz bass, inlcuding two of the knobs. I wanted to adjust the Sadowsky knobs so the white line on each knob pointed in the same direction when both turned completely anticlockwise. But for some reason, I can't take them off or realign them, after loosening the hex screw with the allen key. What am I doing wrong?  Huh

Sounds like you're doing it right, but just to double check, you are aware that there are two hex screws on each knob that you have to loosen right?

I would just take each screw out completely and pull up on it firmly while pressing down on the control plate.

You could also try prying it up once you have the screws out with some sort of tool. I like to use, belive it or not, a spoon for such a thing. The curved bottom gives you leverage AND a rounded surface that wont mark up your bass or ding the finish if it slips.

+1, but be careful where you do it, these screws are very small and they can easily get lost if you drop them.

There are two allen screws on each knob.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I didn't realise they sat so tightly and didn't want to try to force them off. I'll try again with more force and perhaps the spoon method.

Cheers!  Wink

don't use a spoon!  Loosen the two allen key screws on the knobs and they will slide right off!
