5 way switch for s540ltd

Hello.
Finaly ,after playing guitar for over 25 years, I bought my first Ibanez a couple of days ago.
It's a '92 s540ltd, black with gold hardware. It's in a pretty good shape and I loved it from the first riff.
But the 5way pickupswitch needs to be replaced, so I need some advise.
I found a switch at ibanez.com called 3PS1VLX91 and i wonder if it will fit.
Also it would be nice if someone could post some pictures of the control cavity of their s-guitars

I don't think the VLX91 existed back then. It would most likely be a VLX53. Much simpler switch to wire.

The switch itself doesnt matter, unless youre trying to keep bone stock original.

I don't need it to be 100% orginal (the PU are changed to Dimarzio), just need a good quality switch that fits

Re: 5 way switch for s540ltd

I'm a big fan of the VLX53, which is what was used in all the early Jems and the RG 700 series. Not sure if it was used in the Roadstar Pro guitars? If you're using the standard Ibanez 5-way switching, it's dead simple to wire the switch.

The VLX91 is a lot more versatile and is harder to destroy with bad soldering technique, but it can be a major pain to wire it,
