Tesi IDO Super M 10MM Metal Momentary Push Button Guitar Kill Switch
The IDO Super M 10MM kill switch is perfect for the player that doesn't want to make a major modification to his or her guitar. This is the perfect size to replace a standard 3/8" potentiometer with NO DRILLING. If you have a smaller potentiometer on an Asian import guitar, only minimal modification to the hole is required. Asian potentiometers are typically 9mm.

What does all this mean? You're getting a tough switch that will last a long time in your instrument and look good doing it!
The switch is easy to install. If you have the slightest bit of skill with a soldering iron you can do it yourself. If you do not have that skill, you should have a guitar repair person do it. The mounting hole is slightly larger than a standard volume or tone pot (10MM vs. 9MM) which makes this the closest measurement to your standard pothole, and if you decide to go back to your original setup, you don't have to buy a new pickguard or repair that hole in your wood. The difference in the thickness of a heavy guitar pick!
