Beautiful, unique looking board. I imagine this will be very popular. 
I'm personally not a fan of having a key on top of my right arrow so I'm out but it's still an amazing looking board.

Just saw some of the proto pics on discord. You mentioned the clear PC case with the smoky PC plate was a manufacturer’s error. I disagree because it is exactly what I want lol. Super excited for future updates on this

I like the smoky black case and plan on buying it. Something about the frosted case with the smoky black plate really pops though. If that’s also an option at some point I would consider that as well.

No underglow, unfortunately, I've found that Underglow doesn't look too good with smokey black PC.

It looks like in some pictures there is multiple badge inserts for the mountain, but in some pics it looks like the mountain is just an engraving. How will the badges work if there are any? Sorry if the info is in the post and I'm just missing it!

Hi! So, due to issues with having too many parts, we decided having just a mountain as an engraving is the way to go. Apologies for any inconveniences caused!

100% agree. The board looks great except for the right column. If there was a gap above the right arrow to keep the keys aligned with their respective row it would have been a home run. It still turned out good though and I am sure the owners will end up happy. Good luck with the group buy.

Fully agree with that. Everything else looks amazing but the row above right arrow ruins it for me.

How much does it weight approx.? Also, is it USB-C? And lastly, is the weight made of brass?

I just made an account for this keeb! Been a lurker for a while.  :rolleyes:

Seeing that there will be no Vendor support, i hope there are other ways to pay in the GB aside from PayPal. Just spent quite a bit lately, but i need this board, my wife approved it! I told her, i'm only buying this because you and this board have the same name.  :cool:

WORKED!

Can't wait for the GB.

I love how you didn’t put a limit of orders on the GB.

Will be in for a polycarbonate version.

Since the protos have arrived , can we expect a typing test soon if possible ?

IKR. I'm going to support this guy just because of that alone.

I'll be in for sure, thinking of getting POLY and White as well as the colorful deskmat. Was hoping that the GB starts pretty soon and there will be a credit card payment option.  ^-^

And i just realized there is an IC for GMK Alpine as well!  :thumb:

Man, i'm sure to get poly and e-white (unless there will be like an alu color that would match that gmk alpine).

I think you should consider an upper limit on the orders. With it being your first GB I would have concerns with QC and managing of the GB. With the amount of think 6.5 V2 which were sold, I wouldn't want you to take more orders than you could handle in a timely manner...
