Probably full size WASD v2 with MX Clears.

Off the shelf, a yellow edition Filco Majestouch 2 full size with MX browns.. To match my Zowie FK :s

it may take a bit of getting used to but once you understand the difference you'll love it.

My second keyboard I plan on modding


Removed the WASD, esc, and space bar awaiting my new switches to come in the mail, meanwhile i'll work on prepping another top case for paint.

So did you have to de-solder them? (the switches)

yeah, on a 1-10 scale, my soldering skills are a 1, but a cheapo radioshack iron and sucker do the job.

only 2 joints per switch and you need two small flat head screwdrivers as each switch has a plastic clip that secures it to the plate.

I am testing this right now on the controller, but it seems that I can wet sand down the orange peeling (2000-2500 grit) , and once it is all foggy from the sanding just slap down one more coat of clear and ta da? Seems like it might just work..
