KLM-367a build

Greetings all,
Been searching through here looking for a tech who builds Korg Polysix KLM-367a boards. I've found a few shops here to try and send inquiries to, but thought I would throw out the overhead question to see if anyone has found any recent/new leads. Just looking for one board build and I have the old core for connector/thermistor salvage. Any info is appreciated!

Thanks,
rd

I sent mine off to: http://www.oldcrows.net/~oldcrow/synth/

No guarantees on turnaround (he's had mine since April/May), but the price is right, and I'm sure it'll come back perfect!

There's also another: http://www.synthprof.com/clone_367.html

Then of course, you could replace the 367 with a Kiwisix Midi setup.

Thanks,
How'd you get hold of Old Crow? I thought he closed up shop?
Kiwi seems like a worthwhile investment if you know nothing else is broken (which I don't). Synthprof seems like THE expert - being associated with the board designer/maker; but the process seems cumbersome and the cost isn't far from kiwi once you pay the shipping both ways. Ideally I'd like to find a solution stateside - but I haven't ruled anything out. Just looking for options.
Thanks again!

Oh, I just emailed him; the address on the website. It took a couple weeks for him to get back to me, and then a couple more to get the process worked out and the board shipped. Anytime I've emailed him since, its been a few days and sometimes a repeat email to get a response. Busy guy I guess.

I had no idea he 'closed up shop' - he seems pretty active working on projects - I see posts on Muffwiggler all the time.

I thought of the Kiwi too, but at the time didn't want to spend the extra money or time figuring the install. But, I've spent $160 with Old Crow and a couple months later, another $260 on the Modysix midi (plug-n-play) kit. Should of done the Kiwi! Would have had it up, running, and probably sold/traded by now haha.
