If you could only have ONE keyboard...

The time has come, the keyboard apocolypse is upon us, and you have to pick just ONE keyboard that you would be happy using forever. What keyboard would that be? This is one of those questions that makes me a little queasy, as it is an impossible question to answer. Do I go for aesthetics or functionality? Do I go unobtainium custom or vintage ? I've got a decent collection with even more not documented, and on a weekly basis I probably use at least 10-15 different keyboards. I enjoy so many keyboards so often that I'm not even sure how to pick, so I'll just go with my gut... Right now, I'd probably have to say my Raytheon 6104-04 - Magnetic Valve/Pulse board.

Is it the most functional? Nah. Frankly, getting it to work on a modern system at all is quite a pain in the ass. On the flip side this keyboard is the epitome about what I love about this community and keyboards as a whole. The excellent vintage styling and colors are amazing( I'm kind of into that retro-futurism stuff). The tinkering and trying to get it to work on a modern system was done with friends (Engicoder, looking at you), which is the type of homebrew project that connects many of us. The switches themselves feel amazing and the caps put modern SA to shame. So yeah, this is the guy I'm going to stick with forever. That's mine, what is the board you would pick above all others???

After going through countless high end boards (OTD’s, LZ, Matrix, etc...) I will absolutely say my favorite board of all time is my Kira80 with lubed tealios, pretool gmk screw in stabilizers and OG NCR Dyesubs
