Jae, why are the two bottom keys of the macro keys on the layout marked red?  Just curious.

I've always fancied the pen rail; functional and classy. Does anyone have a daily driver that the pen rail gets a lot of use? I'm curious to how the ano holds up to nicks and scratches. I'd be scurred to use it on the e-white.

i use pilot hitec C or signo DX's. Both in their plastic case and the j01 has held up fine. Im sure if you use a brass pen case or a Ti pen case and you are super rough with it, you could wear spots in or cause some nic's. but nothing that wont look better with some break in. it will be hard to have super pristine but also used daily with metal pen cases + white. though e white might offer a decent protection layer.

While I really liked the aesthetics of the brass mid-layer, I appreciate that you are looking to improve the sound. From the brief typing test you did on Twitch, I think it sounds great.

Looking forward to this.

Volume/No of Units: TBC depending on IC feedback, likely to be 100-200 if the demand is there.

lol, is that for real? if this GB goes unlimited, 2k sales easy. i'm NOT saying it should, in fact i'm against it, but the demand will 100% be there.

a few months back i foolishly spent weeks searching for one, i am so happy to see it's back and fresher than ever

So far none of the OG J-01s are sold, all of them are at their original owners.

I'm really thankful for that - the OG J-01 owners are a rare bunch

Without a doubt the OG J-01 is the best board I have in my collection, I can't see myself ever getting rid of it despite fully planning on getting a rev 1.

Jae, why are the two bottom keys of the macro keys on the layout marked red?  Just curious.

Two different top cases. you can have 8 keys and the logo, or 10 keys in the macro pad

I've always fancied the pen rail; functional and classy. Does anyone have a daily driver that the pen rail gets a lot of use? I'm curious to how the ano holds up to nicks and scratches. I'd be scurred to use it on the e-white.

Yes, I've been using the OG J-01 for a couple of years daily now with a solid brass pen, there are no marks in the anode, but the brass on the back of the brass penrail has increased patina, I assume from passing on the oils from my hands. If it was clearcoated that would be less of an issue.

Congrats on this beautifully refined design, Jae. Iím very excited and anxious to join.

Thanks - James was much more accurately able to re-create my vision than the OG J-01, despite how much I love that board, and then we brought it up to modern spec with seamless design etc.

Definitely interested in this. Just to decide which colour will go best with GMK Firefly. Still, depends on price because I've just joined GB on KBD8X. Damn timing. Ha

No - the top and bottom case will be different. Grey base with either the red, black or blue. Onlt the E-white option will come with the same colour top and bottom case.

The reason for this is that I prefer the aesthetic of the grey base with the coloured tops as it helps to achieve the floating look of the board, and fits the design language better. The E-white version achieves similar through natural shadows as the top is much paler than the other colours.

Just on the Blue, someone mentioned that this was the same Blue as the Aegis navy. I reached out to Aeryxz and confirmed it is the same pantone.

very cool to see this make a return. Always hear the OG J-01 as a reference during conversations. Love that you're actively working towards better sound and feel for your boards rather than just minor improvements. I'm slowly coming around to e-white boards so I'm curious about how limited the limited e-white will be? Also, what are the plans for the GB type? Raffle or FCFS?

This is the current plan. As we get closer and I can announce dates / prices I'll provide some more info on these. LE will likely be 10% or so of the main number (with some additional for F&F)
