I'm a bit confused on my invoice, there is a line item for an extra top case

660 Extra Top Case
+ Extra top case
1   $85.00   $85.00

Which I didn't order, and AFAICT there is no there is no extra top case option anyway.

We apologize for any problems. It may be a mistake. Could you send me your invoice number by email or PM?kkingkkongworks@gmail.com.

Hmm. My wrong. I did not see it yesterday. Any chance I could change my order and make it cerakote in black?

Yes you can modify. If you have received an unchanged invoice or have already paid, please send a brief description with your invoice number to kkingkkongworks@gmail.com.

Good morning. We had fewer inquiries than the first one, but we still had to spend a day to get everything done. Thank you very much for your support.

There are many invoice modifications and additional orders that require time to organize. For 20 people who can receive the keyboard for the first time, we will send an email as soon as possible.

We are also preparing things related to shipping. Many people have inquired about customs duties. To solve this, we are checking various things. We will let you know as new updates become available.

It's all manual until check your order and send the invoice.

During the process of writing invoice, there are often problems in which other products are selected due to typos, or other products are included due to misunderstanding the line. If you send me an email, I will take care of it as soon as possible. We apologize if this has caused any inconvenience.

@chanmin
We emailed with regards to the blue wkl one. Just a heads-up that I changed my order in the form accordingly to our communication :)

Also: could you provide a picture of how the plate is attached to the bottom?

Have you chosen the exact Cerakote colors? Specifically I'm interested in which white was chosen.
Fingers crossed for Stormtrooper.

I am really liking the navy blue cerakote. I'm also waiting to see the shade samples of grey and white cerakote and then I will decide which one or two to get.

I really hope I can see pictures of the bottom case, the prototype pcb, and the colors samples so I can have confidence to order.

Considering weíre at 1/3rd of the GB itís somewhat concerning to me that there is a lot of info we donít have yet. Hope you can share more of the colors and internal design before the gb is over.

All the pictures are keyboards we made earlier. we hope this helps in choosing a color.
Colors not listed here will be updated soon.







This is an example of blue anodizing. This keyboard worked without being sandblasted.
KKINGKKONG660 works with the same dye and process as the picture above. However, the keyboard is sandblast, so the surface roughness is different.




This is an example of orange gold.
KKINGKKONG660 will be made in the same color as this one.



Here's an example of purple. This is also the color of the other keyboards that we have made before, and they are made in the same process.






Finally, an example of Red and silver
Like the first picture, this is Anodized without sandblast.
it may be slightly different from the actual keyboard.


We are sorry that we cannot show you all the samples for the colors this keyboard
we offer 17 color options, and it is impossible to produce all samples on one type of keyboard.

Instead of a rendered keyboard, we wanted to show the color applied to the actual keyboard if possible.

we hope this helps.

Purple is an anodizing color. It's just that picture right now. There is no cerakote option.

I brought the rendering.
It will help a little in your decision.
However, since this is a rendering, it may be different from the actual one.

If possible, would you be able to provide some renders or pictures with keycaps on the board? Also, just to clarify the board has a centre USB port?

The champagne gold has a more cold tone to it than I expected (based on other versions of the colour that I've seen). Will there be a sample of it at some point?  :blank:

(Attachment Link)

This is the color that was specially ordered in Korea.
You can also order this color if you like. However, we need to mix the cerakote
so you need to leave this color selection on the remark.

It is important to consider that the same color as the picture may not come out.

Do you have the colour swatches that the renders were based off of? Also, are those colours final?

Note: Thank you for posting some renders - I really appreciate it! I don't mean to keep harping on it, but I ordered a champagne gold keyboard the other day, and just based off of the renders, I think the colour would look great with a drop of a warmer colour (maybe red?) added to it. Right now, it looks very lemony... like a yellow. Of course it's all a matter of personal taste, but if there is any chance of adjusting the colour, that would be wonderful.

On the supported layout image it doesnít show support for 1.25U + 1U on the left shift, but looking at the latest renders posted here it looks like there are holes in the PCB to support that. Could you confirm if it does indeed support 1.25U + 1U on left shift?

What do you mean ? So i can solder a small left shift key and my <> key instead ? Why the layout don't show this option then ?

Oh ok now i see it. Missed it because it was on the right of the picture. Sorry.

And of course i assign Fn key to Menu key on the layout picture right ?

I found the link to their Discord, where they have posted an image of the PCB, and it does not have support ISO left shift (with <> next to it as I need aswell). Check for yourself: https://discord.gg/dRQcZZ9

I really want this, but the lack of ISO shift is kind of a dealbreaker for me...
