I don't think it says anywhere but I'm almost positive this is Cherry profile.
I believe the original Dolch would have been in cherry as they were the OEM for Dolch keyboards.

I've never been so tempted to order an ABS set  :eek:

Based on Ivans adoration for Cherry profile I would be very surprised if they were anything but.

I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw this Group Buy launched.  FINALLY have chosen everything but the ergodox and blanks (don't need them ever).

I really hope this goes through to GMK instead of being another failure to meet the required moq.  This key-set has everything included far more than anything Sherry has done or sold over the years.  Everyone should get on board with this one, because if you lot here fail to ever buy into this Group Buy then you shall never truly deserve any sort of GMK goodness on your keyboards.

It would make me so sick and devastated to see this GB fail due to lack of numbers that I might jump on over to the thorpie camp and never consider using a Cherry based keyboard ever again.  That is my level of commitment with this latest and greatest Group Buy by Ivan, ever released here on Geekhack :thumb: .

I hear some 1.25 cherry caps don't jive well with costar stabilizers.

a couple noob questions:

- i know this Dolch set has a somewhat legendary status among enthusiasts, but is there anything special about them aside from aesthetics and rarity? i was considering getting an imsto thick PBT set due to the majority's consensus that PBT >> ABS, but this set is really making me consider otherwise

- is the color tone of the base set closer to in OP's picture or this: http://i.imgur.com/E7IwqKD.png ?

Not sure if you kept the unique URL for your Google Docs entry. If so then you can just use that and make your changes.
