AKG BX-20 repair in Germany

Help: bought an AKG BX-20 spring reverb and one channel is defective!
Should be the climax in my Reggae/Dub Studio together with all those other great analog FX Units, but.....the seller lied me right into my face and obviously needed the money for booze! (hope his alcoholism helps to make him insensitive to pain the day i will meet him again).
Ok, after measuring and reading the service manual it gets clear: one of the
"coils" is defective.
Do somebody know any experts that could bring my "fridge" to back alive ?
I heard its possile to wind the coil from startup (as some guys are able with Rhodes Pickup coils) or shall i abandon all hope until a wonder will happen and the spare part will fall from the sky ???

Lives for gear

Contact AKG, despite that they are owned by Harman there´s still some helpful people over there who knows the gear they made years ago.
Another option is Audio Pro in Heilbronn, the german AKG distributor. They have a great service department.

Here for the gear

I heard that repair has become possible now.
There are BX20 replacement coils, some spare parts and repair of preassemblies available.
You may search for the terms audio, repair, berlin.
