Can you confirm if there's more than 1 color for the bottom aluminum base?

Better question: can you confirm all of the available colors and/or combinations?

Similar to the Viper/Eagle V2 GB, you have the choice of black and silver for both the top and bottom and they can be interchanged.

If I don't get in the the GB, would anyone be open to adding an extra PCB/plate onto their order for me?

I have a similar request as Mandrew, I only want a PCB/plate combo. Can anyone kindly order them as an extra to their order? :) Or is this question better asked after all the people that made the list are known?

Please feel free to reply or PM, if interested.

Thanks.

I'm guessing they already have the plates for this layout and prefer the PCB from Duck?

Because I really don't like the 11 degree slope. :D (The case looks gorgeous though!) I only have a NovaTouch which I use with the feet down. I tried raising the feet but my accuracy goes to **** and after time my wrists start straining/hurting so the steep case is a no-go. I have faith in the acrylic case files that Duck has uploaded for the Lightsaver (V1?) and I am planning to use them to build myself a case.

I'm not sure, but I'll ask.

Boards will be limited to 1 per person this time around. If there are extra slots by the end of the week, I will allow others to buy a second.

Sorry, it can't be sold separately. You'll need to piggy back off someone else's order for that to happen.

Thanks for the reply. Guess I'll wait for the drop and then ask again. I hope people will be willing to help me and the others who want only the PCB/plate combo.

The indicators are what I always wanted in my lightsaver. I havn't logged in for months and it turns out Payday was the best day to log in to get in this GB. I don't want to live with 5 lighsavers at home so I better sell a v2 so I dont become a lightsaver hoarder.

I considering joining the drop, but ive never built a keyboard before, so i wonder about this:

$80 USD for an additional plate/PCB combo
-Why would you buy extras for this keyboard?

Is switches (and caps) the only thing in addition i need to buy to have a complete KB?

Another question, seems to be alot of hype about the board, but do you think this is something that will sell out very fast? Its very cool, but its still a 400 usd piece.

The plate and PCB extra is for if you want to be able to switch layouts/switches or if you want a backup just in case.

Switches, caps, cable, stabilizers and indicator LEDs.

This will sell out really quick.

The case hasn't been produced yet as order colors effect production. I would say 3 to 4 months
