Convert Silhouette Special

Convert Silhouette Special

I have a HSS Silo Special that I’m considering converting to an SSS.
How difficult would this be?
I’m not terribly handy with a soldering iron.

I am thinking of picking up a second pickguard and new pups to install, and keep the current pickguard as is in case I want to switch back.

Any advice that I should know in proceeding on this project?
Is this something I can do myself with no experience, or should I take it to a tech?

Any suggestions for pickups?
I dont know if I could source another MM silent circuit unit, so maybe noiseless pickups?

I know that’s a lot of questions.
I’m just trying to eecide if it will be a project I can do, or if it will be more trouble than it’s worth.

Thanks for all your help guys.
