Low Profile Super Plate With Backlit
USB-C Hotswap PCB
Featuring a low profile case the Clueboard 66% LP will give you a sleek look and the strength you expect from a Clueboard keyboard. Each plate is 4 mm thick and machined to allow all of your switches and stabilizers to work perfectly. Separating the top and bottom plates are custom spacers in your choice of brass or anodized aluminum.
Build Your Own Keyboard, No Soldering Required!
Clueboard 66% LP comes with a brand new hot swap PCB. This allows you to build your keyboard without soldering. You can even choose between a standard 6.25U space bar or split it into 3 keys for more customizability.
Build a Keyboard In Any Color
You can choose the color that will make you happiest. Like previous Clueboards you can order Clueboard 66% LP anodized in Black, Purple, or Silver. However, we’ve also been working behind the scenes to give you more options.
We’ve partnered with Powder Coat It of Santa Cruz to bring you new finishes. Choose between Manilla Beige, Galaxy Wave, Desert Red Wrinkle, Powder Blue (YouTube), or Black Iron II for a low cost. Even better, for a paint charge starting at $50 you can choose any color you want! You can also check out Prismatic Powder’s YouTube Channel to get an idea about how colors change in the light.
Note: Powder Coating may require up to two weeks lead time. Some colors may require an additional cost on top of the Custom Color charge. If the color you choose requires this we will contact you before processing your order.
Tasteful Backlighting and Animations
Clueboard 66% LP comes with a tasteful white backlighting that is controllable per individual key. Set all the keys to a comfortable uniform brightness, use any key as an indicator, or watch entertaining reactive animations such as raindrop and heatmap. With Clueboard 66% and QMK you can do anything your imagination can dream up.
