The '70s were a time of great change, a decade remembered for its eccentric style and color choices. The 1976 keyset in SA uniform row 3 celebrates the colors of the '70s with the iconic red, orange, and yellow gradient that permeated the design and style of the decade. Of course, it wouldn't be the '70s without a generous helping of brown, and 1976 doesn't disappoint, surrounding the gradient with a field of brown accented in blue. The 1976 keyset brings all the garish glory of the '70s to your keyboard.
Note: Purchasing options center around a Base Kit covering the standard 60% layout, with child deals allowing for coverage of larger keyboards and those with non-standard and international layouts. Due to the uniqueness of the gradient colorway, specialty base kits are available for ErgoDox and Planck keyboards.
