Okay ladies and gentlemen, we have the nominees for this month's Keyboard of the month. They are:

Futurecrime's TGR Jane V2

And finally, The_judge_168's TGR Jane V2



No more photos yet that I can find, would love to see some more though!

As always, the poll will last for seven days. Good luck all!
Can we get them to build the Alps ten feet higher and get Cherry to pay for it?

Ha!  Easy one :D
"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

WKL TKL best TKL!

The layout of the Salamander makes me sad. Full mods + stepped is the way to go.

Proper TKL WKL is SSK.

True.

The longer I'm in this hobby, the more I like large gaps to the alphas actually. SSK takes that to the next level and looks dope too.
