Nope. PCB doesn't have holes to accept it in OP. Nor did the OG GB have Alps compatibility.

Heh, nice nice.
I have one question and regarding the switch placement for "esc" , "1" and "enter".
Are they upside down accidently? Seems like the leds placement is opposite compared to the other switches. o.o

It's to accommodate other layout options, or to route the traces around electrical components.

Ah alright, I thought it was an accident. Thanks for the clarification!  :)

Hey, does this rev. C support full in-switch LEDs? Because if i remember correctly in rev. B, it only supports the WASD, and several other keys.

Are these likely to be available in sufficient quantities to last for a while?

Quite a few new members say they'd like to build their own keyboard, and it would be good to be able to point them to TechKeys for the GH60, provided there's enough stock to last for a while.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

There is currently a fair amount of stock - I don't foresee selling out any time in the near future

Thanks!

Will the kit include all parts (including switches)?

Will there be an option to purchase a kit pre-assembled?

Right now only the PCB is available: http://techkeys.us/collections/accessories/products/gh60

I have plans to add more switch options, stabilizers, and plates.

I do not have plans to offered a pre-assembled option

Cool, thanks :)

Switches are easy, stabilisers not too difficult, and there's probably a plate or two would suit.

There's probably a few suitable cases around too.

Good luck i3oilermaker, and if anyone asks, I'll be sure to point them in your direction :)
