is it possible for me to build an overdrive/boost into my axe which is controlled by switch or button on the body?

Get an EMG afterburner.

This chick that looked like shrek ****ed me while I was passed out on xanax. I screamed when I woke up.
yep, EMG makes 2 different types of onboard boosters

the said afterburner: clicky

the afterburner is adjustable with an push/pull pot

and the PA2:

this is on / off, no realtime adjusting of the boost
(you can adjust it, but the trimpot is inside your guitar when the PA2 mounted)

i personally have the afterburner and am very happy with it
