where to find a rotary pup selector?

So I'm modding my strat to fit my particular tastes. I never use the tone knobs and the volume and pup selector gets in my way when I strum. So I'd like to move the volume where the 1st tone knob would be and put a rotary pup selector where the 2nd one would be. I'm having a hard time finding a pup selector that would fit w/o additional routing.

I'm a little ignorant of what goes on under the pickguard, but I got a guy who'll do the wiring if I find the parts. . .

basically I need a small rotary knob that does what a Fender 5 way super switch would do:


the guitar is a H/S/S

1 = br hum
2 = br single & mid
3 = mid
4 = mid & neck
5 = neck


anyone know where I can get one of these??? (I've been told the ones in a PRS are too big)
