    Any recommendations?

    Though you may prefer the flat toggle look and feel of the original for a pickup selector. RS do one https://au.rs-online.com/web/p/toggl...d%22%3Atrue%7D

    Though it's less than half that price in the UK!

    But a more expensive one with more fixing washers and nuts might end up being better value in the end.

    Thatís an on off on switch, what does that mean in terms of pickup selection?
    Also, I had a look at jaycar and they had an on-on switch, will that work with the diagram that was posted on the first page?

    Sorry about that! Was looking more at the DPDT thing and the flat handle than the switch configuration.

    ON-ON is two position, so you won't have the mixed position available, just neck or bridge.

    Loads of cheap mini DPDT on-on-on switches available, but almost all have round toggles.

    The two I linked are indeed on-on-on (3-way) switches.

    Very reasonably priced IMO, and even with postage, probably cheaper than the Realparts one. The one caveat is no flat lever.

    FTR I buy heaps from Realparts and they have great products & service, but I tend to order multiple items in one go to take advantage of their shipping discounts. However, little one-off items can get expensive with the flat-rate $7.90 postage. It comes down to "is it worth it to you?"
