5-Way, 2-Pole Selector Switch?

I am looking into using the Oak-Grigsby 5-Way, 2-Pole selector switch but it is kind of big for what I need it for so I am now looking at the Ibanez 5-way switch but I cannot find and datasheets or detailed information on any of these switches. Is the Ibanez switch a 2-pole? Is it smaller than the Oak switch? I cannot tell.

If anyone has any mechanical drawings or datasheets on switches that would be really great. Size is critical in my application, the smaller the better, but 2 pole, 5 way it has to be.

I am sorry that I can't explain at this time how this switch is going to be used but it is for a guitar application.

Re: 5-Way, 2-Pole Selector Switch?

The typical Ibanez 5-way is not a multi-pole--the Jem switch is, but I'm not sure of dimensions. If I get a chance, I'll measure the one in my 77VBK.
