Thank you! Yes there were two treble bleed kits I dropped those in.. did sound samples aswell to check.. they do seem to keep the treble and gain when you roll the volume down!!Outstanding!
And am I seeing a couple of treble bleeds there in the bag?
Thanks man appreciate the kind words, will do!Very cool guitars!
In my past I had a Topaz Gem. Wish I had kept it.
Congrats and rock it.

I noticed the bridge had little wire inserts up near the screw head they were mostly crooked, I nudged them all in flat as I could

Hey there thanks for the compliment, any insight I could give you is subjective to what your preferences on your guitar may be. I say tinker with it, maybe you would prefer not to and that is okay. I have the neck all the way in and the bridge quite lower than where it was when I got it and then raised all the poles up a few turns to make a new sweet spot.I had never heard of the Gem series before now, looks like a really cool axe, congrats!
I noticed you have your P90's quite a bit away from the strings. Most things I've read go for the bridge super close to the strings and the neck just a tad lower than that. I've been meaning to tinker with heights, but what's your opinion?
That's seriously so badass, thanks for sharing. Since I love my sapphire I had thought of owning another color and the Amythest is the one I would get, that mod is really cool, I'd hope to have one just like it with a quiet pickup. In the wiring for my gem series I do not have hum cancelling in the middle position, how would I wire it to do that? 50s?Cool...…….my very first LP is a Gem also...…..Amthyst.
Modded with a 57 Classic in the bridge when I got it...…..
LOT of guitar for the bucks. Enjoy yours!
