Ok, I am going to replace the pots in my LP type clone. I am going to order them offline and want to know whether this stinking thing takes short shaft or long shaft pots without having to take the pots out to measure. Now, I know that sounds lazy, but I don't want to desolder and resolder the pots anymore. I have replaced the pups and caps already and will need to still use the guitar till the pots come in. What is the big difference between the short and long? Is it minuscule? Can I just order the long shafts to be on the safe side and still use them if its suppose to be short? The body cavity is really deep, but I don't want to get stuck with the long shafts being too tall. Can anyone shed some light on the height difference between the shafts on the short/long?
