Have you considered making a hotswap PCB for the default layout?

I actually have but it won't happen for this GB round. Have thought about it and will start working on it once I have time to play around.
If all goes well in R1 and we get around to R2, I'll be sure to pick up one of the hotswap PCBs :)

Well, given the manufacturing had it's delays (mostly due to long waiting line) I presume August. I know I know, I promised June at first then July and now August. But they're packing up everything as we speak so it should be with my US proxy late next week or early  first week of August. After some community quality checks and some more research to find a good PCB fab shop I'll have figured out pricing with packaging and pcbs included.

Didn't you mention you'll go for two boards if the price is right? :D

For a classic beige set you definitely can't go wrong with a silver top. But if it's something like beige with 9009 accents, the green should look real nice also. :)

I'm triggered for purple color but the green one is a good pair with GMK 9009 as you said.. Hmn

Yeah. I am hoping - let it be dreaming - in getting twins. Being OG Beige my favorite colorway, I'd try the silver and / or the green tops. I vaguely recalled an old marine workstation in green, but I am not sure if it comes with a Beige set. i should look for it. Thank you for your advice.  :thumb:

The purple is nice but I *just* bought into the new Rev Preonic with it's new purple colorway. For the TMO50 I'm thinking of going classic White.

Actually, according to the OP, that „white“ in the color sample picture is silver.

I'll have more colour correct photos in couple of days. And yes, that's silver. The white colour from the render is unavailable and not possible with anodization.

I just quickly scanned the thread but wasn't able to find anything about it: Would it also be possible to get a raw case (without anodization)? I really like the green but am also thinking about getting it cerakoted.
Looking forward to it in any case, most certainly will join this GB. :thumb:

Kind of a bummer, but I'm sure the silver will look equally as classy and work with most keysets.

Powder coating may be an option, although it is expensive for low volume runs, to get aluminum tops in white. But, people that really cannot live without a white top they can always paint a silver anodized one.

Was a bit busy with life but my US proxy has received the founder boards and they are looking GORGEOUS!

She's made photos of everything for me and so there's high quality photos in the OP. Check under the renders, there's links to albums for plate options, base options and also couple of complete boards. Also there's way better colour sample photos, still under "Color options for plate and case:" section.

Hope you enjoy and we're really close to the launch!

That combination of a silver top with dark grey bottom is gorgeous!!

I lurked for quite some time here and I’m definitely interested!

Also really nice to read how you handled the “tinkering” with the founders edition! Awesome work!

Haha actually, I'd find an engraved TMO50 in the middle of the back super nice. :)
Really loving the green! Man, all the colors you chose are soo good!
Will there be a possibillity for a raw aluminum one? I'd probably go for two if this was the case (or maybe I'll go for two anyways..  :rolleyes: )

There is a Micro-Arc-Oxidation process that may produce a white-silver finish on aluminum. For those that cannot live without a white top. It seems that its price is higher than other aluminum finishes and it probably may require a special logistics and shipping and handling that will make it expensive. Anyhow, here is a picture of a previous board that features that finishing. I am not interested in this color, but just want to share the information.
