Note: 1.  If you are uncertain whether your guitar uses short (3/8") or long (3/4") shaft  pots, as a general rule this pot will fit most USA-made Gibson Les Paul's manufactured before 1977 excluding Les Paul Studios, and will fit historic reissues, but  please double check before you order. 2. Make sure to pinch the tip of the shaft before you try fitting a knob, this will avoid getting knobs stuck before you install the pot.  If you've ever had that happen...

    Very good quality pots with nice torque and the same taper as Centralabs used on late 50's Les Pauls. All six I received are comply with the tolerance values. Thank you TAOT for super fast shipping and special request fulfillment!
