PAF Pickup Leg Length

Question

What Pickup leg length should I buy when replacing a humbucker in a Special FM (flat top), Artist Archtop Semi Hollow, or Archtop Solid body?

Best way to find out would be to pull the pickups, and see how deep the routing is. I know that the stock pickups in the bridge were long-legged Seymour Duncan '59s in many, so they have the deep routing, even on guitars like a Diablo.

Short legs will definitely fit. Best to measure to ensure the long legs will fit before ordering the pickups.

Thanks Tbone! I was hoping that was the case. Looking to try some Dimarzio 36th Anniversary pups and they only seem to be made with long legs.
