wespj10, congratulations!  You won’t be disappointed and it’s exciting to watch a new one come together.  I’ve found that mine has opened up in voice much more quickly than I anticipated.  Probably the result of different characteristics with the Euro spruce than the red spruce that I have more experience with.  The “tree” back and sides seem to produce more overtones than other mahogany guitars that I play regularly and fits in somewhere between rosewood and a more typical mahogany box.  It’s a very intimate guitar overall in spite of the volume and depth of the larger OMG body.  I like it a lot.  Keep us posted as your build progresses.
