Fender S-1 switch and push/push pot questions

I have a Universe that only has a 1 bridge pu/1 volume setup but now I want to add a neck single coil. I only want one control on the guitar (like George Lynch). I've done this with a push/pull on my 6 string guitar, but it was a little cumbersome having to grab and then pull the knob while playing. I thought a push/push would be easier, but I haven't been able to find one that is on/on; I've been told this is what I would need for what I want it to do. I've also been told push/push pots are usually on/off.

So my questions...does a push/push pot exist that is on/on? If so, where can it be ourchased? And if there isn't such a thing, would the new Fender S-1 switch do what I want? I only want one pickup on, one off with no combos or splitting.

The older Ibanez Roadstars all had these. They used them for coil splits but they have three tabs and are on/on. I have plenty of them, so you can contact me if you want one, but other local techs may have them around, too.
