Not yet - I think he was going back to see what he can do with the feedback that others provided around the side accent pieces.

Yay.

Is there an end date to the GB? Seeing if I can put this on the next credit card statement.

It will be open 1 week.

How many units will be available?

Per region is still being discussed. For the US we are soft capping at 350 but may accept more. This will be finalized in the group buy posting.

Are the layout options at the top of the thread finalized? Would really like to be able to do a regular tsangan bottom row with 1.5, 1, 1.5 mods, instead of the weird 2 mods on each side.

Sorry, that layout will not be available for this board. I am finding that that layout is irregular for the exploded 65+ style boards like this one but I may be wrong on that.

How would that even work? The total u on each side of the spacebar for the 7u layout is 3u on each side, whereas 1.5, 1, 1.5 would be 4u which would not work with this exploded layout. Even in the 6.25u layout it has 3.75u on the left and 3u on the right which wouldn't work with that layout of 1.5, 1, 1.5 mods.

Even if you removed one of the 1.5u mods on the right and put a 1u mod on the left, you'd still be left with .5u unaccounted for.
