Well guys, last night I decided to sell the guitar. I tuned it up and got it looking level, action correct, good intonation. Within 15 minutes it was all over the place again. Bridge stayed level but the strings went way out. I never even got the opportunity to replace the stud bolts I got from Rich. Even if I did, it wouldn’t solve this issue.

Edit: Guys, I just heard back from my tech. The locking pads at the nut were not locking properly. He said he plucked the strings above the nut (above the lock) and dived the bar and the pitch was dropping. He replaced them and the guitar behaves as it should! SMH.

I still think I'll sell it though. Simply because out of all my Jems I think its the one I could most stand to part with. I really wanna pick up one of the new Pia Jems and they're very pricey. (I know not everyone digs them but I'm loving the way they feel)
