Im looking at getting a push pull pot for my les paul studio for coil tapping but i have no idea what to get (e.g. long shaft/short shaft or 250k/500k)

i have found these and im wondering which ones would work
thanks.

I'd be surprised if your LD Studio took long shaft, but it's possible: just take off the knob and look at the shaft. Does it match google images for "long shaft pot" or "short shaft pot"? It's a very very obvious difference, just buy the one that looks like yours.

Humbuckers are almost always wired to 500k pots, and for volume you'll want audio/alpha (i.e. logarithmic) taper, as apposed to beta/linear taper, which is typically used for tone controls.
