Congratulations John you have a sweet looking guitar and I'm sure the experience of building it with Steve and Ryan was a memorable experience.
Enjoy it in good health.

Congratulations. No better way to hit the big Ď4í in style. I wish for such an experience myself.

Iíve got 2 questions. How deep is the depth of the deep OM? Are those Schertlers?

Howdy!

Lower bout widest is 4.5"
Upper bout is right at 4"

Yes, they are gold schertlers with the buttons replaced with ebony schertler buttons pulled off another set that got customs. This is my first time to have them on a guitar and they are amazing. Smooth, precise, and solid feeling. The aesthetic is a little modern for my taste, but the function is as good as any I've felt.
