Question Can't remove tone/vol knobs

There's no set screw that I can see unless it's under the rubber cover (which I can't easily remove). I've tried using a lot of force to pop them off and they're not going anywhere. Are they friction fit, glued on, hidden set screw? This is on an Ibanzez 2011 S970CW.

The top unscrews and then it's all held together with a 3mm allen. Be very careful to pay attention to how it comes apart, or make sure to keep it all together so you don't have to try and figure out how to put it back on.

Thanks. Never ever imagined the top just unscrews. I've replaced them and have put the original knob assembly back together as it came off the guitar.

Re: Can't remove tone/vol knobs

Trust me, *I* had to call the company and asked the first time I had to pull one of those, the last thing you'd expect in the top unscrewing and there is no direct that I can fine [except maybe the manual, I've never read it ]

I recently had to move the volume knob on an RG3770FZ. Lucky I'd read this thread..!
