PRS SE Singlecut pots?

Thinking of picking a PRS SE Singlecut up (Les Paul style). Would these need the extra-long pots like Les Pauls do?

Not all Les Pauls need long-shaft pots. It's pretty much 50/50 on whether a carved-top guitar wil need long- or short-shaft pots, and even some flat-top guitars are too thick to get a short-shaft through. You can't even really narrow it down by brand, because these things can vary from year to year and factory to factory; most PRS SE guitars use short-shaft or 'import' (metric) medium-shaft pots, but some SE 245s have had long-shaft pots. Really, the only way you'll know which your guitar needs is by opening it up and taking a look inside.

The only thing you can know for certain is that imperial/US pots won't fit, because of the shaft diameter.

He does, it just depends on what exact guitar you have.

Ah, so they differ from model to model?

Not just model to model, but year to year, too.

As I said, the only way you can be sure of which shaft length you need is to open up the guitar and take a look inside.

The only thing you can be certain of without opening up the guitar is that imperial pots won't fit, only metric ones will.
