Knobs On RG2228

Hi there, I am trying to put my volume and tone knobs on my RG2228 but I cant figure out how these work.

I can put an Allen Key in the knob from the underside and loosen it off so it fits on my stem but than I cant re tighten becuase the allen key hole is inaccesible. Any idea how these work ?

I saw a video somewhere on the interwebs about those. Check to see if the knobs have a flip top on them. I can't remember what the site is though.

If you can loosen them, how does the Allen key hole become inaccessible so that you can not tighten them? I have the same guitar and can have a look tomorrow. It may just be an overly tedious and slow adjustment to make.

Unscrew top cover if you're talking about Prestige knobs with rubber grip,the dome part.

It's probably a collet guitar knob. I created a video--using my RG2228--about these elusive little suckers.

Hopefully this helps:

My RG2228 has metal knobs. All that is required to remove and replace them is a small flathead screwdriver. These knobs look like they are of the “fancy” variety.

Yep, they put them on a number of Prestige models for awhile--not sure which years. I've had 2-3 Ibby's with them over the years.

That solved it. I got them off by sliding a cloth underneath and pulling like I do most knobs. No issues until I had to put it back on.
