If you are uncertain whether your guitar uses short (3/8") or long (3/4") shaft pots. As a general rule Les Paul's built before 1977, Gibson historic reissues, PRS and Hamer use short shaft potentiometers, but please double check your guitar before you order.
If your guitar is an import it has metric pots and the openings will require modification to accommodate this pot.
