I was just checking out the store page to get prepped for this to drop, and I noticed that on the GB page there isn't an option to select the PCB.  I assume which one you get will just be based on the plate selection?

Yes, that's right! Staggered plate = staggered PCB, ortho plate = ortho PCB.

Google pay, Shopify quick checkout and/or a decent autofill will save you plenty of time! No need to type your address in 2020. Unless itís an infosec thing for ya.

It needs to be soldered on but if you really don't want to I have added a $5 option where I'll solder it on for you in the store

You are the best!! Haven't soldered since high school and would have been kinda down if I had to buy my own iron for just one component. Looking forward to tomorrow!

I am so excited for this to drop, still having a hard time deciding between steel blue or clear polycarbonate. Wish there were more renders/prototypes of these versions haha.

Fingers crossed I can grab one.

Woohoo, got one in E-white! Tax seemed kind of high, but I guess it was about 8%. After getting the keyboard, an extra PCB, some extra plates/knobs, and a foam insert, tax ended up being about $50. :eek:

At least shipping was nice and cheap. I was a bit worried due to the weight.

Oregon, checking in at 0% sales tax.

Course, we're paying 9% income, so it's kind of a wash.

Any chance there can be extras for maybe a PC bottom (To mix alu top with PC bottom) sometime in the future? I think it would look REALLY cool to have alu top and still see the brass weight/more underglow with a PC bottom. Granted, that's if the tolerances allow for it and there's enough demand I suppose, but I'd pay a little more for it if you had any extras. ;)

Oh no...Does not support PayPal payments? I proceeded with it in a minute but was asked for a customer number and missed it because the system did not recognize my number normally.

I'm so sad...Maybe the buyer and payer's customer numbers should have been the same, but I don't know if you'll ask for it. I won the race, but I never thought I couldn't order.

What's the email? I had a similar problem; but it was the fact that polycarbonate, polycarbonate pink, and e-white all showed as sold out while blue steel aluminum and bushido red were not. I ended up getting the blue steel but when I went back to the page it showed polycarb as in-stock; so I quickly grabbed that. Now hoping I can get the blue steel canceled :T

(before grabbing blue-steel I did ctrl+shift+r several times to make sure it wasn't some weird cache issue with my browser)

Just so everyone knows - there was an error where many more than 200 sets were bought (This may have contributed to some of the errors seen), but Cajal has said that's ok so I assume he will be fulfilling those out of kindness of his heart :). I'm sure he will send an update soon.

Sigh missed out due to card payments being declined. We really need an alternative to PayPal since banks seem really suspicious of many Shopify merchant transactions..

Same thing happened to me. T_T. If anyone ended up with an extra spot for an ortho board that they want to unload, let me know! (Especially in Blue Steel)

I was meaning to buy 1 blue and 1 red, both standard sandblasted with gold knob. My receipt shows I bought two reds, ortho brass and black knob...
Maybe Cajal can simply transfer your blue steel quota to me (but then I have to get my duplicate red ortho cancelled, anyone interested lol?)

Haha, I actually had someone else also message me about taking the blue steel spot. I decided however that I will just keep both boards, and if I decide I only want one I can easily resell it since the board is so pretty. I emailed him hoping I can change one of the orders to a staggered layout with the polycarbonate plate since otherwise they both are using a brass ortho plate. Both the boards have that sick gold knob that I plan to keep though :P (would be neat if I could grab an extra knob in black but I guess those got taken down once the GB finished...).

Edit: got in contact with him and was able to modify my order :)

Cajal sold out in 3 minutes and 20 seconds. Wow. Thank you all for the support. Please email wokechill@gmail.com with any problems or concerns about your order. I can make changes only for the next day or so, then I will be paying the factory to get production up and running rapidly.


O and if I see y'all sell before shippy, your order will get the snippy :scissor_motion_with_hands:. Be classy out there lol.
