Looks amazing, but I think round bar would make look even better.

I love it. Could be wrong, but the case looks to be thicker and the bar section looks to be shorter, which is fine by me.

Part of me was really looking forward to having the OG bar, but from an aesthetic decision-making standpoint, this design looks fantastic.

The one thing that really made the OG LZ-GH was that the smooth curves of the chassis, the bar being one of those features. And I think for me it stood out as not being a pointy piece of metal with some buttons on it. I personally would love to see a more "round approach"  :)

I agree, a round bar would certainly be ideal and fit the general design a bit better.

iirc the screw-wings (idk what to call the little flaps where you mount the plate to the case) looks different from the original one.

why do people like bar over a keyboard that has no-bar (like camp c225). Is there typing benefits or is it just because of looks?

I actually really liked the aesthetic of the square bar as well but I guess that's not a really popular opinion here.

Nostalgia for most (V1 had the round bar). It does change typing feel/sound though.

Same here. I dig the square bar. Feels a bit more modern and stylish to me.

I get the nostalgia too... but for me, Id vote for a V2 of this classic instead of a R2.

I agree, I like the aesthetic of the round bar over the square. Why not both? Start off with it being square as it transitions to being rounded off at the bottom. ... Nah that's stupid.

Not sure about skcheng's, but I don't think it was offered that color through the GB.

But, a tan, or especially beige coated case option would be sweet.

Looks like both the case and plate were re-anodized to different colors than original. And a brushed finish applied to the stainless bottom housing and bar.

I don't mind the look of the square bar all, but the main reason I'm interested in the GH v2 is that owners of the GH v1 seem to praise its typing feel.  Changing the bar from round to square will surely affect this--maybe for the better, but I would guess for the worse.

Hoping for round bar ... and blue-grey / dark blue.
