Guitar gear heads - what toggle do I need?

I have a 2 pup Dano 56-U2. I just pulled it down from the loft after a long hibernation.
The toggle died some time ago so that I can only use both pups. I'd like to replace it.
What the heck do I need? A DPDT? A DPST? SPDT? I don't know... it's all alphabet soup to me.
Can anyone help me with that?

Thanks

DPDT (double pole, double throw).

Two common types:

A boxy cheap kind (most likely)

Or a les paul style like this:

Either kind can be had for $5 to $15 at any guitar store. Easy fix.

They don;t call me GITARZAN for nuthin!

Most excellent, sir. I cannot thank you enough.
Yep, a cheap boxy one, it is.
