Re: [GB] Melody65 - Release Info Announced! - 26th of Oct - KBDfans

So, I have a potentially stupid question to ask here: If I pre-order this kit, when should we expect these to be shipped? Like within a couple weeks? Or is this wayyyyyyyyy later next year like I've seen with other neat keyboard kits?

Should be expected to ship early next year.
We don't have good estimates at the moment, but it should be around January-Febuary ,considering that you will have up to a month to purchase a case (most likely mid-late febuary, but it could be sooner/later)

Has the actual revised height of the front end been given yet? I know it's 2-3mm lower now but I can't find the original dimensions so I don't know what that equates to.

The current height of the case is slightly under 25mm, so after the height reduction, it should be around 21.5-23mm

Around 21-22, also that's not a straight wall, it is 14mm of vertical wall and later is starts the fjell-like edge.

probably dumb question, but will the hotswap version plate work for the standard ANSI layout with universal PCB?

Is the universal pcb the standard kbd67 pcb or the one with the flex cuts?

For anyone wondering I couldn't add the foam and the keyboard at the same time.  If I picked the board and the foam the only thing in the cart was the foam, had to go back and actually add the keyboard again with no foam.

yep, but you will have some extra 2mm holes for the standoffs (there are to clip the hotswap pcb), photos here: https://imgur.com/a/6l1P6Ws

It's a custom one that is a re-iteration from the last kbd67, so we don't know yet to be honest

I tried to add the Navy Top, PC bottom, Universal Soldered + Brass, plate foam. When I did Add to Cart the only thing there was the foam. I went back and added the board with no foam and the cart was then correct with the board and then a separate listing for the foam. I tried like 3 times thatís the only way I could get the board and foam in there.

It was the plate foam. I also was in right at 10 so not sure if that had anything to do with it. At any rate I paid around 290 and it has the keyboard and the foam listed in my order so Iím good

Any chance for an "official" wrist rest? KBDFans has done that for a few other releases previously.

Sorry man, we had to limit this a lot. I'm sorry that someone who followed the IC for the whole time didn't got it, but there are many people asking this.

is there a rendering or picture for the dark grey? Also, is the silver polished, brushed, matte, or does it just have speckles in the paint?
I am stuck between these 2 colors.... thanks!  ;D

Sorry they forgot the render. 
Regarding silver, it's the typical anodization silver. I would personally go for dark grey, more matches with keycaps.
Probably you can find other boards made in the past with silver and dark gray on kbdfans store. It will not be exactly this, but this is a comparison on the tofu https://i.imgur.com/JS7FO48.png

I just ran into this and found that if you have multiple tabs open, this happens. For me, it was adding multiples of everything because I had added it to a cart in one tab and then in the other tab, I removed them but still must see some session data from other. I also saw the issue of just the foam added. So, to resolve this what I did was close all other tabs, refresh the cart, delete everything and then hit the Continue Browsing here link.

No worries dude, glad that the group buy even happened in the first place. Felt like it wasn't going to happen for a while there lol. Congrats on the succesful group buy.

Any chance of a FE style alu bottom? I prefer the flush look, but I grabbed a full polycarb if not. Seems like the type of board that would be interesting as polycarb.

Multiple people asked this, but it won't be available for this GB. 
If this would go very well, we might consider but it will be years from now  :D
