I came up with the question. If I put in a blue saber crystal to this new saber will it change to the default model?

What hilt model is assigned to each colour crystal is determined by upcrystals.2da. If you want your custom hilt to have a custom crystal (i.e. be upgradeable) then you have to add a unique colour crystal for it to upcrystals.2da. So unless you change it, yes putting a blue crystal in it will revert it to the default hilt (assuming that your hilt is custom and doesn't override the default hilts).

Here's an example from a custom hilt request I did for someone for K1:


2DA V2.0

label template shortmdlvar longmdlvar doublemdlvar
0 BLUE G_W_SBRCRSTL14 g_w_shortsbr01 g_w_lghtsbr01 G_W_DBLSBR001
1 GOLD G_W_SBRCRSTL15 g_w_shortsbr04 g_w_lghtsbr04 G_W_DBLSBR004
2 GREEN G_W_SBRCRSTL16 g_w_shortsbr03 g_w_lghtsbr03 G_W_DBLSBR003
3 VIOLET G_W_SBRCRSTL17 g_w_shortsbr05 g_w_lghtsbr05 G_W_DBLSBR005
4 RED G_W_SBRCRSTL18 g_w_shortsbr02 g_w_lghtsbr02 G_W_DBLSBR002
5 Heart G1_W_SBRCRSTL20 g1_w_shortsbr01 g1_w_lghtsbr01 G1_W_DBLSBR001
6 Mantle G1_W_SBRCRSTL21 g1_w_shortsbr02 g1_w_lghtsbr02 G1_W_DBLSBR002
7 DPSaberOld g_w_sbrcrstl26 **** g_w_lghtsbr26 ****


You can see there that it only has a hilt value for longmdlvar which is the standard single hilt. It doesn't work in short or double sabers. The value g_w_lghtsbr26 matches the resref of the hilt.

That will only happen if you fail to put in the correct uti file name in upcrystals.2da in the right column. And if you did put the right name in the column, make sure you have the right model variation in the uti file.
