What will be soldered onto the PCB already? SMD components? Diodes? LED's? Nothing?

All SMD components come presolder, such as the contoller chip, smd rgb led, diode, resistor, USB connector, etc... you only need to solder the MX (compatible) keyswitch, and add in switch LED if you desire full backlighting.

Oh boy. This puppy will be mine. Do you know when the estimated shipping date is? Is it just as soon as the group buy ends? And are there any pictures of the different plate colors? I'd like to see the difference between silver and grey if possible.

I got mine through Ivan's last group buy.  Good board so far and the buy itself was pretty fast and almost entirely hypeless and without drama.  I highly recommend.

Judging on the picture it looks like the PCB is set up for PCB mount switches. Is this correct and the reason why the plate is optional? Are stabilizers included? Just wondering so I can order parts.

www.ortholinearkeyboards.com has 2u PCB stabilizers, but he only seems to sell them with the Planck Universal top plate (since it needs one). You would just need longer wires for spacebar. Not sure if the wires for the plate mount ones are the same but he does have those too.

Thanks for the info. The ortholinear stabs are plate mount I believe and I'm planning on not doing a plate for this res scarf. I found the part numbers for pcb mount stabs and found that Mouser has them in stock. I have the capabilities to make my own wires.

Check out Sprit's GB threads.  I purchased some VERY nice Gold PCB stabs (he has OG non-gold stabs as well) from him not too long ago.  His shipping speeds are hit or miss though, but for the most part, I've ordered from him twice and never really had any issues to speak of.

For international, if you are good with paying the $30-35 shipping price then by all means.
These are set up for PCB mount, so the plate is entirely unnecessary and why it is an optional. PCB mount Cherry stabs are required, no other stab types will work even with plate.

PCB mount is better anyhow! Soft to the feels.

Any chance of the stabs being added to this GB?  Would definitely make it more attractive to me.

I found PCB Mount stabs on Mouser here. These came with a wire too. Unfortunately I wasn't able to find 6.25x wire for PCB mount stabs anywhere so I just ordered an extra set of the stabs to use and will attempt to make my own wire.

Is the bottom pair gray in that picture? I'm only asking so I am 100% sure I don't get dark gray when I would like light gray. And I don't want silver that's very shiny.
