What pot shaft length does my Les Paul take?
The short and long pots differ by the length of the threaded portion of the shaft---Short's are 3/8"-inch and Long's are 3/4"-inch.
Gibson Les Pauls that take long shaft pots:
Gibson Les Pauls that take short shaft pots:
Of course, with Gibson, there are lots of transitional changes, custom one-offs that may not follow the list.
ALL EPIPHONES TAKE SHORT SHAFT POTS!
(the only exception is the Epiphone Les Paul Elitist)
There is no difference in Tone between Short & Long shaft pots.
Tip: Long shaft pots will fit in ANY Les Paul; adjust the nuts for proper height above the top.

That's funny you posted! I was just at the RS guitarworks site looking into that same thing.
