So I got a brand new RG370AHMZ a few days ago and realized that the selector switch is flimsy I decided to replace it with a dimarzio "CRL" 5-way selector switch. Problem is, the CRL screw holes are wider than the screw holes on the Ibanez flat top. Am I screwed?

Picture for reference.

I'm not sure what your picture shows but the centres look ok so you should just be able to enlarge the holes in the guitar slightly so the new screws will fit through.

No the picture doesn't show, it's actually 0.28mm off.

Would a YM-50 5 way switch fit better?

I'm really curious, how do you guys deal with that 0.28mm difference between an Ibanez 41mm slot and American 41.28mm slot 5 way selector switches? There seem to be no mention of this anywhere else at all but seems impossible to mount onto my RG370AHMZ without something breaking apart.
