GB hopefully this summer, as for hotswap, probably not.

If PCB is not fixed in terms of design (I presume it from "probably" not hotswap), is it possible to add support for rotary encoder in a top right corner? Just a footprint on PCB, no need to alter the top case or plate, so it would be buyers choice between installing switch or encoder and his headache to source the compatible knob.

Again, I like this idea a lot.

Ahhh I see you forgot a zero...

200 units @ >$400USD (plus extras, shipping and, for some, customs) may be a good test for market demand on a premium sub-60. Then again, thread is indeed titled ‘premium’.

I was never much of a sub 60 or over 70 keyboard person but this thing is FRIGGEN AMAZING.


I cannot wait for the GB for this, adding a 50 to my collection would be my go to for travel and work.

The color combos are perfect also, I don't believe you need to change anything!
