any update on this yet?

Which "this"? If you mean delivery, there was a notification email from MD on 2016.07.21 indicating that some plates were scratched and being redone, so there would be a delay.

If you use the individual lock indicator LEDs in the upper left corner of the board then you do NOT need to jumper for "lock-type" on the in-switch LEDs unless you want both for some strange reason.

In-switch LOCK behavior has the LED normally off and it only turns on when the indicated lock type is engaged.  So for Caps Lock the LED sits off until you engage Caps Lock, at which time the LED turns on -- this is how any normal in-switch lock indicator works.  Why would someone want this?  Mainly if they have WINDOWED key caps for the lock keys.

Gotcha, that explained it perfectly! Thank you very much!

We got final sample few days ago.
Quality check passed, we are producing batches and expecting 2 weeks for check and packaging :)
Thanks for long waiting.

I wasn't a part of the community when this was on Mass Drop and am SO sad I missed this. When I was just getting into mechanical keyboards (very recently) I saw a picture of a gold one of these and it was one of the pictures that really made me decide to get into this community and into mechanial keyboards, I lost track of it through my first little bit of getting familiar and learning about stuff but just came across this and remembered that picture and why this keyboard sparked so much interest for me. Really hope to see more of this design in the future so that I can finally get my hands on one. Couldn't love this design more and love having more information about it now that I know a little bit more about keyboards!!

Also the comment below this, if there will be any for sale please let us know. I didn't realize that MassDrop aparently doesn't give a window to correct payments? Is that the case?

Any update as to if you'll have any extras to sell outside of Massdrop? My Massdrop credit card debacle made me miss the drop.

You've definitely been put through your paces on this GB.
The issue with the scratches must have been a real headache, but you got in front of it really well.
Kudos for putting this together and I hope the hangover wears off soon :)

Ah, I need to explain a little more.

First, there's NO B-stock.
All B-stock will be returned to factory, and reproduced as new one.
So, it's all brand new.
I got several (more than you might think) PMs after last minute announcement.
So, yes you can ask stand in line, but as always, no guarantee. it's already full.
And, we will not post the reservation list anywhere.

Some of you got my mail or PM that says "you are in", for those.
Please, DO NOT POST ANYTHING ABOUT YOU ARE IN. That might make others thinks to PM me faster can make it in.
We really are exhausted, please. please give us at lease couple of weeks to rest.

We will announce for selling leftovers when it's ready.
I promise!

Finally, we are going to get our hands on this.

I noticed back when the drop first ended. The total order amount on MD was around 108, I might be wrong and looking at the total order number now, decreased to 102. I guess a few people cancelled their order.

If they only knew there are a list of buyers who missed the drop.

just get some other boards to try for a while to decide on weights and such.  Hotswap modding is $$$

So, I tried searching around a bit, but am having trouble finding info on this. Anyone have a pointer to how to go about it? I imagine it involves sockets of some sort for the PCB, but am thinking that a fair amount potentially has to change, like the plate. I did get an extra PCB, but not a spare plate.

No idea if I'd try it, but if I were, this would probably be the board to do it to.
