Beautiful boards. I am a bit sad there is no split space bar option, but I'm in the minority on that for a 65% board I think.
Split Spacebar everywhere my friend. You are not alone. :-)

But what do you mean with there not being an option? Split spacebar is supported by the Think6.5 v2

Where do you see that? The diagram in the OP only has 6.25u and 7u spacebar options shown.

From what I previously read, the Schrodinger option will be a random mix of colors and it does not include getting one of the pre-selected options. As in, there is no chance of getting a stormtrooper, or etc, with this method. I believe they also said they will include some aluminum top and PC bottoms in the Schrodinger.

that's unfortunate, i was hoping a totally different random color. like possibly yellow or baby blue. oh well. i guess i'll pass on the Schrodinger

Missed out on the limited edition version yesterday so I picked up a Schrodinger and Snow White in addition to a couple artisans and an e-yellow badge, if I'm lucky I'll get an e-yellow Schrodinger. :)

Will you declare the original price or is there a way to put let's say $20 in the invoice?

Otherwise $370 + crazy expensive $70 shipping + $70 taxes makes it $510 board  :eek:

That's incorrect.

Schrodinger will be a custom color that they decide on once they start getting samples.

It's not just a random top and random bottom.

Yeah, definitely just you, because such questions have been discussed many times in other threads (i.e. Fox labs threads for reference).

Wait...how does that make it NOT dumb?

Edit: Also, they've already said on Discord to stop asking about it. Take that how you will.

Vice versa - why should it be dumb? Quite a standard practice while shopping online at Asian stores. But seems we are moving away from the topic.

The question is still relevant.

Because it is illegal to do.

Pre-selected colorways that the Gray Studio guys think look nice. They should be more unique than the standard color ways.

Yes

Wonder how it will hold up long term. Def weary of lacquering it up with a PC case.

You may want an extra vibration pad too to go between the plate and PCB

Yes, brass is polished, but not treated otherwise. PVD has not been my friend in the past. It will look great when it is out but brass will age with time, please refrain from adding extra brass if you do not like aged brass, unless you plan to clean it or polish it every 6 months.

If you want quick answer to any questions, please join the discord for answers. Order related questions can be directed to my email.

.......and thats it. From missing out on NK65e to pushing the "complete order" button on this. Also a very big price difference. My wallet is crying. I got the PC version. AUD dollar hurts
Also thanks for keeping it open for 24hrs. I would not have made it otherwise.

Thank you all very much. The Think6.5V2 GB page is closed after 24 hours of opening. I have already ordered the material with the factory manager and the production will start this week.
For those who missed the GB yesterday and would like to join, I will open up some slots for a few hours during the special Alexotos Think6.5V2 e-white prototype giveaway stream this Friday (7PM EDT).

Because doing so is a criminal offense, so asking someone to do it in public or expecting someone to publicly confirm that they are breaking the law is rather dumb. But what do I know, I'm just a tax lawyer.

Thanks to Potter, Oldcat and the GrayStudios team for putting together such an outstanding group buy for what will no doubt be one of the best 65% boards ever made, and with so many customisation options as well.

Very excited to get my first high end custom keeb and now just have to figure out what switches I am going to put in it.

It's closed. If you actually went to the site you linked, you'd see that all options are "sold out".
