GMK CYL Beloved
Re-run of GMK KA2017.
A little backstory. When I first started in the hobby, my girlfriend didn't want me to spend money on keyboards. She'd beat my ass every time she caught me, and yet I still do it. So I decided to lure her into the hobby by showing her cute artisans, keycaps, boards then I showed her this set and she loved it. She really wanted it, but it was very expensive. So we just gave up on getting it. Around 3 months later I contacted OG runner and finally got his/her permission. My gf will be very happy that I do this, so I can spend more money on keyboards hehe.

Although R5 adds cost to base kit price, I personally prefer R5 and I think it's worth it.
Bars kit will not be included. Letís help vendors move their deadstock.


My friend lent me his KA2017 to replicate the novelties, but unfortunately he lost a key.
Thanks to trungminhtp, he sent me a picture of his set. So I can draw it more accurately.

PSA to prospective buyers:
Group Buys are inherently risky endeavors. There is an element of risk involved with collecting payment before the item has been produced and resulting uncertainty during manufacturing / subsequent operations. We urge all GB organizers to consider (and document) these risks, and want to make it clear to all who consider purchasing that these risks are present.

If you are unfamiliar with the Group Buy model, please read this primer - Group Buy FAQ / Buying Guidelines

This PSA is new and will become standard on all Group Buys moving forward. It is not posted on this GB in isolation and is not singling this organizer out in particular as someone to be wary of.

Excited to support my favorite B-rated vendor with this set :thumb:
