Original 5-way switch - Where can I get it ?

Last year the PU-Switch of my '87 JEM 777DY began to make problems.So I replaced it unfortunately with an OAK-Switch (open).At least it works really good,but after replacing I noticed that the original pink switchknob did not fit.So I painted the white OAK-knob with pink nail polish and nobody will see this at first sight.But still there are the terrible screws of the OAK-switch (original screws also didn't fit).
Now I started the search for the original-switch,without luck.The german Ibanez dealer Meinl sended also an open 5-way switch (I think CRL ) to the Musicstore where I ordered it.I think O-switch is called VLX 91 or VLX 53.Does anybody know where I can get it in Germany or via Internet ?

Original 5-way switch

The VLX-91 is the switch currently used for the JEMs. You didn't get the wrong one, it's just that the original switch in your JEM is no longer available.

You should take your switch cap with you and visit local Guitar shops. Test fit the cap before buying the switch.

OR...click on that swirled banner up top and see what you can find.
