Is the vintage Hammond X-2 any good?

There was a band playing last night and the keyboardist had (what I believe was) a Hammond X2. I couldn't tell how it sounded because I caught the tail end of their performance but after chatting with him a little he said he liked it. I'm sure he told me exactly what model it was but I was drinking so I can't remember :) Does it actually sound like a true hammond?

I used to own one and they don’t sound like a cheesy combo organ. They sound Hammond -ish with the limited drawbars and percussion. But it’s 100% solid state transistors...and so was the Leslie that accompanied it ; all solid state with a footswitch speed control. Present day software emulations do a much better job than the X2.  But compared to my A-100 , well ... there is no comparison .
