    Lets get this question out of the way: Yes, I am crazy!

    One of one...? I can't imagine that I'm the only one who's done an HH conversion to a Silver Sky. http://imgur.com/a/hQ3ydTP

    I also have a Midnight Rose HSS Silver Sky (Will post once I get it back from my guitar tech). http://imgur.com/a/x7WP0iD

    I had a Golden Mesa which I sold last year. It had minor mods. http://imgur.com/a/fwjGrD9

    Who else has modified a Silver Sky?

    DODGEM BLUE SS PARTS:
    •PRS Vintage Locking Tuners
    • PRS CORE Saddles
    • Bass 58/15 MT & Treble \M/ Pickups
    • Emerson Custom Prewired kit With Added Push-Pull Tone Pots
    •Emerson - Oaks Grigsby 3 Way Switch
    •Mojoaxe Pearl HH Pickguard

    They look terrific.

    Were the vintage locking tuners a drop in?

    The only mod I’ve done is changing strings to Elixirs… but I have to admit the blue HH you did looks pretty sweet!

    I’d be happy if I could find a good mint green pick guard and vintage white knobs/pickup selector for my Dodgem Blue. That would be perfect for me!

    Thank you! I'm hoping to inspire others to not be scared of modifying their SS.

    Yup, drop and play. Super easy mod.

    Haha! I got a good laugh out of that one.

    Thank you. It's such a killer color in nature light.

    Reach out to Dan at Mojoaxe for the pickguard. Not sure about the knobs or selector.

    Dayum... that's awesome!
    I'm too chicken to mess with mine, but a HSS variant would be killer.

    Yes. I bought one of his moto pickguards for my Nebula, wonderfully made, dropped in beautifully. Can't remember whether I have any photos online.

    Nothing super exciting, just engraved dog tags - one for my current Penny Lane and one for my late Lucy (in the sky with diamonds).

    That's really cool! I think you just inspired me to get my SS's engraved as well.

    Nah. As in, you own that and are willing to do anything to make it yours.
