Goddammit, JD!  That looks awesome!  And while I certainly don't NEED another JD45, I have to say it is the most usable sub-60 layout available.

Good job.

Dammit.

I like keyboards and case modding.  Everything about a computer should be silent -- except the KEYBOARD!

Read through the pre-orders... does the DIY ALPS kit come with keycaps and/or stabilizers, perchance?

I'd also appreciate an answer to this.

Sorry, my focus has been on the group buy thread and not this older thread. I'll try to get the info merged there, although I believe the answer is already  found in the FAQ in the second post of the GB thread.

All DIY kits in the pre-order group buy include a CNC milled alu case, a PCB, and a color-matched alu switch plate. No switches or keycaps are included, since it is assumed that people who assemble their own keyboard will want to bring their own switches and keycaps.

As stabilizers are completely optional with the JD45, none are included in any package.

Ah thanks, I should have looked for a GB thread. My bad!
