I just want to say whoever is responding to the chat messages on the Play keyboard website is doing a fantastic job! I have made a number of additions to my order and they have been super helpful

Yup was easy to add a last minute regular PCB to my order.
Now the wait begins!

I see the bt pcb is still in stock on the site, is it possible to add one to my order so I can bundle shipping with the rest of my board? Sorry for any trouble this causes.

Will there be a round 3? I just discovered this :( was so keen on alps and Bluetooth compatibility.

We might have some extra available for purchasing after GB is done. :thumb:

I've heard a couple comments while watching build streams that the V2 CA66 is going to have the light strip elevated to help stop the light bleed into the surrounding keys. I can't find documentation of this anywhere; is it true?

Yes, Play Keyboards stated this during the IC. The Bluetooth pcb doesnít have the elevated led strip but the wired one does!

Thank you for the info! I went through the IC briefly when I joined the GB, but I must have missed that.

I'm super excited for this kit. I have a custom cable ready, Modern Dolch arrives around the same time, modded jailhouse green switches with gold 50g springs ready to go, and I built a pc to match everything.

So the BT pcb will leak light compared to the non bt-pcb?
Is there any pictures that show how big the difference is?

There arenít any photos at this time that Iím aware of. But that is correct. From the photos Iíve seen the light leak is pretty minimal and can be blocked if you feel so inclined. 001anthony did a build stream where he made a ďlight wallĒ to prevent light bleed using some foam.

Hi guys. Hope you are all doing well. A quick update here.

CNC is 50% done.

We are kind of busy at the moment for multiple things coming up.
Sorry for the late reply if we can't do it on time.  :)

I didn't get any Alps plates but depending on which one I decide to keep (bt/wired) I will probably have a spare PCB and plate to let go.

Pretty sure the BT pcb model is Alps compatible and I think the plates are too

Huh, I could've sworn it was the stock PCB that was Alps compatible, guess I was wrong. Going to be looking for a second BT PCB now, I guess.
If the plates weren't Alps or MX specific, why would an Alps plate have been an option? And why would both an MX and an Alps plate been shown as separate in the OP?

****. I guess I am looking for a Alps plate. If anyone has a spare or wants to sell, please pm me. Thanks. I am open to trade a brass plate for your alu alps plate.
