Are you super married to the idea of the kill switch thing? I put one on a guitar and didn't use it much myself so I am wondering if that could be eliminated on our build to save some dough?
Well i have technical issue with the kill switch being a little to big
That being said i have 2 options
1 would be eliminate kill switch all together and roll with 2 tone pots.
2 would be to either order a 16mm or 12 mm switch instead
Any opinions? As spud said it is not really a necessity i could always use my 3 way as a kill switch
Thanks for your opinions

In all honesty I think your original intent was a funtional guitar for yourself that was a tribute to your hero. I would stay the course and order the smaller diameter kill switch/s. Using the 3 way over and over for that will eventually wear it out.

Rank order:
1 = Half Moon Mini
2 = Butter Bean
3 = Tulip

Thing is this judgment is made in a vacuum. The question to ask is: which button do I like with the esthetic of my build. It's a strange thing, but I have tulips on one build and they look great (A Tele), and then the half moon mini's on a jazzmaster, they go with the curves.
.... wait .... I just thought of the real question: What would Bucket Head do?

Mark is an absolute artist and the One on One service is Unmatched!
Denver area’s Best For Sure!
The coil splits a creamy good the neck is just incredible to play no more cramped left hand! What an absolute dream from start to finish from the warmoth guys helping to the completed guitar it self!
