WTB Amiga 2000 with vintage blacks.

Please contact me via discord or email as I don't check pms very often. As long as you're seeing this post, I'm still buying.

Thanks!

Do you intend to harvest the switches?

Why would you think Pot of Greed would do that?
Why would anyone do that?

I think there are other keyboards much more suitable for harvesting switches. People get these for it being a mechanical Amiga keyboard or for harvesting the keycaps, before they think of the switches.
I regret that I once bought only the set of keycaps from a forum member instead of the whole keyboard. I now think these should be kept intact.

reddit disagrees. they will desolder any board for its sweet, sweet blacks when a random 3000 with an early date code would be just fine

The Amiga has a cult following in Asia, it could just be a guy who likes Cherry Switches and has a Amiga 2000? Pot of Greed is a Yu Gi Oh card IIRC.

Yes, I do not intend to harvest switches from it, as I already have many G80-1000HAD and 3000HAD that does the same thing with better switches. I love Amiga boards and use it as a collection. Amiga 2000 >> Amiga 1000 because of the Amiga logo keycaps.

I've seen a few on ebay, a couple in America and one in Germany IIRC. Another option is to try asking on some of the Amiga forums....

Thanks for this sir. Didn't think to look for Amiga forums.
