Yes, there's definitely been some of that on my part, mostly because it's not a 1, 2, 3 go sort of thing. Going to a company the builds the entire keyboard on a per unit basis, then having them price each individual part as a stand-alone...and it's the first time for them to do that, it's not the smoothest. The pricing questions are numerous. Are they making 8 keys or 300? What woods? What sizes? What legends on what keys (from a managing the product view, not a price issue). It's not quite like our new buddy WASD Keyboards who pulls the color/size out of stock and engraves it. These guys need to make the actual keys, so there are some legitimate business scaling concerns for them to address. And, I'm trying to do any footwork on this end to keep the contact minimal, focused, and with purpose (not a waste-time looky-loo).
It should be ready later this week. Keep in mind, to troubleshoot, after I get information, I process it and put it back through the meat grinder with them to make sure they haven't miscalculated or overlooked anything, and have them review and confirm. It would suck to have a 2 month group buy, collect money, place the order, and a couple weeks later hear that it turns out to not be feasible for some silly reason. It happens, and I don't want to be the point man if it did, I don't need a GH target painted on my head like a Seal on Osama.
I wish I had a keyboard of wooden keys already
