Get some Deoxit D5 and spray then work the switch. Spray a cable and then work it in and out of the jack. A little goes a long way. It also cleans up scratchy pots well.

Looking at the e530 it may work better than the 5150 III since the function you want is at least listed in the description. How well does it work? No idea.

It sounds like you have your mind made up already. Buy it and post your results back. If you're getting a good deal and don't like it, just flip it. Plenty of demand for used 5150 IIII.

From the info listed I'd point you at the Jackson DK2M as well. Comes with Seymour Duncan JB and '59 so that should cover the tones you listed. You have to add the coil splits and killswitch.

The 5751's in V1 and V5 tamed most of the fizz and let's you use the gain knob a little more in my 5150 combo.
