What I got from the luthier was "bright, yet full." I'm hoping for a Youtube in the next few days, after he's done more fret finishing, etc. Although I'm working with a mahogany body (warm sounding), I told Sublime Pickups I wanted something clear and more on the treble side (I like that piercing sound on lead playing, with plenty of harmonics). He said I would get something 'bright, yet full,' and apparently he delivered. I've yet to discover this for myself, but I trust my luthier's opinion. Sublime (out of Hungary) is an interesting manufacturer... hand made, and if you tell him the body style of the guitar, the wood makeup, and what tone you're after, he works until he feels confidient in the outcome. He actually took more time doing these than he expected as he was not happy. So far a class act, and so I'm anxious to get my hands on it.

The entire set was only about $200, about the same price as any set of DiMarzios. Pricing various depending on how many you want, if it's a set, and what pickups you want (based on the website selection and minor alterations to best suit what you're looking for).

The JEM Sublime is shipping in about a week or so... Casper Guitar Technologies is on the finishes touches. The Sublime Pickups are of an interesting construction. Turned up full, they have very similar tones with great 'punch,' but as you roll off the volume each have unique characteristics. The neck pickup should be incredible for some soaring leads... it was constructed so that there are bell-like overtones that ring out, making for a quality that is not typically in most pickups. Stephen Casper confirmed this as he did a trial run yesterday. Hoping for a bit of a YouTube in the next few days from the luthier.

Gotta say that's a sexy guitar. Personally I would nix the grip but that's just me. Congrats.

The grip is one of my favorite things about a JEM.

Silver hardware shipping today. Update from the luthier:

"Well, it's that time. This thing in amazing. It plays so well it's crazy. Definitely one of my top builds for sure. Over the last several days, I've done some photographing the guitar for my website, adjusting action, pickup height, polishing spots, adjusting the neck, touching up frets general setup stuff and final adjustments. Tonight, I'll be adding the RFID chip as well as the truss rod and trem plates."

The knobs are to be replaced (standard ones right now)... a custom whammy bar to be inserted... and the selector switch will be chrome (not white).
