Will a VLX91 superswitch fit a 1989 540S

I recently purchased a 1989 Ibanez 540S ltd and the original five way switch has some bad posts. I am replacing the switch and adding Dimarzio pickups. According to all of the wiring diagrams on Dimarzio's website the switch used is an Ibanez VLX91 superswitch. I ordered one to get the wiring setup that I wanted, but have read that this switch won't fit the older Ibanez S guitars. Is this true? If so is there any way to make the switch fit?
