no, the 3-position switch doesn't come with the kit, you can find it where they sell electronic parts (probably also RadioShack or online).
I bought the transparent adhesive film in a office shop (where they make photocopies, prints, etc.). Then you print on the transparent film with a common laser printer (as you would do with a paper sheet), cut the part you need (same size of the amp's faceplate), remove the paper and put the transparent film with lettering on the faceplate. Cut the holes where knobs and screws should go and you're done. So all the faceplate is covered with the film, not only the letterings are transferred. The film stuck rather well to the aluminium.
Not a difficult job, only some patience and precision needed.

raver, this is a great help for me.

1. I spent 30min on digikey site, confused, any webpage for the 3-position switch u recommend? (I am total newbie in electronics...)
2. I will go to Office-depot and find the adhesive film!, this is a great solution!!, thanks,

gychang

here for example for $1 (but if you have a radioshack in your city you should be able to find one there too):

Sorry, I meant a new knob, not a pot.
