Cap for 3-Way Pickup Toggle Switch, Where to Buy? (JS1000)

I have a JS1000 Black Pearl that I bought in March 2006. I actually bought it from Rich @ Ibanezrules. I'm pretty sure this forum is where I heard of him.

Anyways, the guitar is awesome, haven't had a single problem with it in 5 years I've owned it.

However, the black cap on the 3-way pickup toggle switch came off somehow, and I never found it.

I figured, no big deal, the plastic cap is just cosmetic. But after an hour of playing, flipping the bare threaded metal toggle switch, I noticed blood all over the strings and skin missing off my pinky. I put electric tape on there for a while, but I want a new cap.

TLDR:

Does anyone know where to buy a black plastic cap for the 3 way toggle switch on a JS1000?

Appreciate it.

Guitar Center, Musician's Friend, eBay, StewMac, and anywhere else that sells guitar parts. I bet Rich even has some.

Maybe I asked the wrong question.

Are the specs on a 3-way toggle switch cap standardized? Like are the threads the same size on a toggle switch regardless of brand?

Or is there like a specific cap for JS1000 that will only fit on a JS1000?

Or can I be like "Yo I need a 3-way toggle switch cap colored black" and get something that's sure to fit?

Thanks for the reply.

I'd bring the guitar into the music store to make sure

It's just a standard toggle switch tip.

I bought one for a Gibson/Epiphone toggle and it worked perfect.
