Question Any Hammond Organ Experts?

Last week,

I acquired a Hammond Model F-100 Extravoice organ, With Service manual/Schematics/Tuning Guide. The cabinet is in fair/good condition, 1 chip in veneer, and no back cover. Otherwise, This was a fairly well cared for item. It was owned by a professional organist and was alleged to be his favorite. Anyway, It was working at the pickup location, But during transit something must have rattled loose because no sound comes out. I have not bothered looking further for a reason why.
Basically, I was wondering if anyone knows of a good Hammond Organ forum. This is a very rare model for the most part, And I would rather find someone that would indeed want the item as an organ rather than doing my usual Parts Strip!
Trout

Edit, This item is in Illinois 20 minutes from Dekalbs NIU Campus.

Hey!

This Extra Voice F-100 a collectable? Or A Salvage affair?

I tend to not like busting them up, But Ummm you know what I mean. I saved it from ending up in the landfill as it is

I really couldn't speculate as to it's value... i'd have to say not much.

Single manual without tonewheels...

Probably alot of nice iron in it though...

Lemme see what good sites I have links to.

Heck dude,

You got schems... start probing through.

Or... just gut it... I couldn't find much on it at all.

My scam is finding B3's that have been "Rocked" to death and then loading in A100 guts and selling the restored B3. All the same parts of course.

Actually dude,

People are pretty dumb... the A100's were actually the flagship. They have all the B3/C3 guts plus...

You can score the A100's for 1K and get a 5K B3 up and running again.

I Just couldnt trash another Hammond organ without asking around. Had I known the A100 I found at an auction for 8 bucks was worth anything, No way I would have Killed it.

Thats Kinda why I posted about the Extravoice. I know Hammond used them on 90% of the Demo records even for other models LOL

Heck,, Gime a korg digital I am happy lol

This F100 is cute, Small and simple. But There are a lot of Nice Parts
