How to remove the tip on the 5-way pickup-switch on my RG550ex?


I ordered a mirror pickguard for my RG550exsd, it should
arrive within the next days, today I tried to remove the tip
of the 5-way switch but that damned thing won't move.
Any ideas how to put that thing off without destroying it?

Thanks in advance,

You just need to give it a good yank. It's pretty tight if it's never been removed, but you should be able to yank it right out. Maybe some pliers might give you the leverage you need.

get some pliers and wrap it with a t-shirt or something so you don't damage the tip. A small set of pliers will do.
