Organs: Hammond 124-XL - Any good?

Hi all,
I'm about to go try a Hammond 124xl organ.. (Its about 125$..)

Does anybody know anything about this series?
Unfortunately, I wont have a Leslie to plug it into though.
Nonetheless, I'll be aiming for a reggae-type bubbling sound.

Is this anywhere near the B3/C3 series? Am I wasting my time?

thanks, Simon

Hammond 124

It's a transistor organ. I sincerely doubt it has a Leslie out.

I got my answer... I went to see it before I saw your replies.
It's a toy organ...

Instead of draw-bars, you have buttons that say "piano, mandolin, etc etc".
You even have an auto-play mode: You press a key and it plays a melodie for you to play over.

And it sounded like shhiit.
