Help finding specific 500 k push/push

Hello members, so, I need some help finding a specific pot. The previous owner had installed a 500k push/push pot in the tone position to facilitate a coil split, but it became noisy. I have already replaced it with one that I ordered from Ibanez parts, and all is good.

However, this switch is very cool, and unlike any other push/push I've seen or used. It resembles a Bourns, as its plastic, but the lug configuration is different. Most push/pull, or push/push are either up, or down, I'm assuming mechanical, as when its up the switch is open, when down its closed.

This switch remains at the same height after pushing, maybe the switching is not mechanical.
Other than the issue with it becoming noisy, I liked the switch, ( although my tech would get confused about what position is was in, as you have to put the amp on the clean setting and listen to see if its in single coil or humbucker mode.

Here a some pics,... Anyone know anything about this?

Monotone sells one also, although the shaft is correct size for RG's opening, it will only take US splined knobs. I have had many, MANY pots through my hands, but this one is different.
