How to get out ferrules?


Supporting Member
So I am having a hardtail Strat painted and I can't get the string or thrubody/hardtail ferrules out for the life of me!
I tried using a straigth screwdriver, then a perfect size socket and tapping with a hammer, didn't even budge. Maybe the old paint cured around them.
Any advice or tricks?

Heat them up gently with a soldering iron. It will soften the finish holding them in. Then use the techniques you mentioned.
