Some of the really high end ones are totally customizable but online only.

However, what you said isn't a bad idea, since the mid to high end mechanicals all use the same range of switches (some Cherry variation usually) so if i find one i like, i just get a keyboard with the same switches for the same "feel"

I don't collect spare hardware anymore. It goes to the thrift stores usually.
