    I like this one, and it's a real Fender part..... that little top knob from a Fender concentric bass control. Has a genuine Fender set screw too!

    Barrel, to be honest. Just feels easier on my hands when switching pickups, for some reason. It's like there's more to grab onto, and since I usually switch by curling my pinke around the switch, the round barrel shape sits better with me :)

    Barrel. I had to look. Though I found a cream top hat for my '54 National D-8 Steel Guitar. That took some searching.

    Exactly - there isn't enough room (for my fat fingers anyway) between the volume knob and the switch with a barrel switch tip.
