There's one on e-bay now. Probably too bright for you, though.
OK, so you and I are definitely the GT-67 fanboiz here on GS. I have a pair of them, and love them. But, do you think they're bright? I've always thought of them as fairly "thick" mics. Honestly, I haven't used mine in a while, so I kind of forget exactly how it sounds, at least compared to the other mics I've been using.
Anyway, I totally agree with you that the GT-67 is a sleeper, and probably about the only LDC you can get for anywhere near that price that's worth bothering with.
Glad I've got my pair, because once you and I hype them up, they'll become unobtainium. :-)
