I'm replacing some pots on my Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top. Should they be alpha (audio log) pots or beta (linear) pots? Also, should they be long shaft pots?

long shaft audio taper for volume and whatever you want for tone. Audio for tone is stock I think, but linear works too.

^ tone needs to be audio taper. Literally just fixed a guitar that had linear taper tone pots. Basically with linear you get a REALLY bad drop off at the end and nothing in between.

sir, i would like to inform you that you are now my favorite UGer. Not only did you use the word y'all, which is native to my homeland, but you correctly punctuated it using the apostrophe.

lol.. ok. I never used linear taper pots for my tone pots. Just heard that it could work. I guess you can use linear taper if you always leave it on or off or need it like switchable haha.

TS,
Gibson uses linear pots for volume on many of their 2-volume models.
This allows for more control, blending 2 pickups together.
You should open your control cavity cover and see what your guitar is equipped with.
