AKG C412 Repair/Mod: Need recommendations...

I have a pair of AKG C412s that need some lovin. The mics both have the original CK12 capsules with brass ring, but one of them has a bad transistor(?) and is noisy.

Korby Audio had a go at them a few years ago (cleaning them up) and they couldn't find the part, so my understanding is that bad part is "unobtainium", so I figure my only option to end up with a pair of reasonably matched mics is to get both of them modded (hopefully for the better).

I am looking for suggestions/recommendations for who to send them to, preferably someone that is really familiar with modding that era AKG and can turn them around in a short, predictable time span.

Thanks in advance for any help!
