Will there be any vendor for NA/Asia?
There will not. The board will only be sold through Keebwerk.
Does this mean the will be shipped from germany to customers? If so i'm in. Because this will save me alot of money on import fees and customs.

Great work on the renders and design! Was just wondering if you were planning on making a discord for updates?

In terms of the sale it will probably be pre-order style but that's yet to be determined. The pre-order style sale will allow us to hopefully have shorter wait times than a traditional GB style sale. More details will be unveiled soon!

That is the plan as of now! The keyboards will ship directly from keebwerk.

There are no plans for a discord as of now unfortunately, best place to stay up to date would be on this thread. Thank you for your kind words!

Not to be asking you for any commitment or something, but do you think this project will get to conclusion by end of 2020?

Unfortunately that's not something within the realms of possibility. There's still quite a lot to be done before even the sale begins.

Thank you for replying so quickly. One last question, in addition to what is being offered as part of this GB; what other parts should one get to have a fully working keyboard? I am not an expert and mostly want to get this as a gift.

Most kits include a PCB, plate, and case. In this case you would need switches, stabilizers, and keycaps.

Do you mean no GB this year or no shipment of final boards to buyers this year?

The prototype should arrive sometime in the next 2 weeks. After that we'll build it, test it and get pictures and sound tests.

Unfortunately there is no discord as of now, but perhaps we'll make one in the future! As far as the timeline goes the prototype should arrive sometime in the next 2 weeks and if all is good it's only a matter of finalizing the colors and setting up the sale.
Thank you all for your interest!

Shipment of the boards, the sale will most definitely happen within this year!

Will we be given the choice to pick the color of the bottom part of the case? I see white/red in the renders and I'm wondering if we could mix and match to get something like white/navy.

It did! We're still waiting on the pcbs though. In any case we'll be assembling it and getting some pictures in the coming weeks!

It will be shipped from Germany indeed!

other Plate materials than alu and brass would be nice as it is known that pom/FR4 sounds and feels better with some switches
We will be offering polycarbonate as well, we can also look into POM and FR4 though.

Unfortunately It won't be unlimited, we don't want to bite off more than we can chew.

number of units still tbd? would be awesome if unlimited is possible :)
We're thinking of offering around 150-200 units, while not unlimited we think that's still a good number of boards and would help us keep things manageable to ensure the best quality possible.

Thank you for your kind words! Prototype pics will be shared in the coming weeks  :)

Yes the colors are all customizable, you will be able to get whatever color combination you want!

Oh, I know what I was saying. 150 units is plenty for the GB, not plenty for everyone that wants one to have one.
