    Local junk shop has a junker sitting in the back I might go ask him what he would charge me to strip it as he has it not for sale as it does not work. I think it is a Hammond but its been a while since I talked to him.

    I think one of the coolest pros for Weber kits is that you can order a kit, cabinet, and speakers all in one place... shipping from three seperate places would add up quickly. The ala carte option and the ability to upgrade certain things is cool too.

    As far as cons - you get what you pay for. The parts are not of the greatest quality (pretty awful actually - definitely avoid their plastic jacks), but you can't beat the prices - especially for beginners.

    As far as the thread's subject, I think I'm abandoning the Hammond to Dr.Z conversion. I've got too much stuff on the bench.
