FWIW, I was able to purchase two Apple M0116 keyboards from ebay for about $30 shipped, each. One has very clean salmon ALPS, an the other has dirty orange ALPS. From my understanding cleaning ALPS switches is kind of a PITA, but you might get lucky and get a clean board.
A bit extra work to get some complicated ALPS, but I'm not crazy about newer Matias switches. They don't feel as good as complicated ALPS, IMO.
I will be working on hunting down some SKCM Blue ALPS for this build.
Shouldn't be too hard to clean them honestly. You don't have to desolder Alps switches to open them up, which makes things easier if you're lazy.
Hmm, may consider this. I really should have paid attention when CPTBadAss smothered me with Alps info... No clue what switches I would want...
This is why we can't have nice things. I try to help you out but pfft
