    I am pretty sure only vintage '50s & historic Les Pauls have short shafts.

    Thanks for the reply...yeah thats how it should be, just thought somebody might know for sure.

    The deal is I'm being lazy....I just put some Aldriches in it the other day and forgot to check while I was in there, and didn't really want to open it up again yet.

    I ended up calling Gibson....The guy I talked to put me on hold while he went to find out...came back and said it would have short shaft pots because it does not have the plate in the control cavity. Basically said all Les Pauls without the plate that just have bare wood will use short shaft. I guess this is right?

    My R9 Historic has LONG shaft in it, I know for sure because I replaced the stock caps and pots ;)
    The Lifeson? Well they are neither, they are special because they are all push pull to control the Piezo and the phasing of the humbuckers. ;)
