I'm playing with a honky tonk blues band and need those three sounds. Short of buying a Grand, a Fender and a Hammond, what comes closest?

Playing organ on weighted keys is not optimal but if that is what the OP is used to, a used Nord Electro II rack might do it for him. That's what I still use on some gigs (add a 61-key controller for others).
I doubt he is dissatisfied with the P120 piano sound itself- IMO the P120's still a competitive stage piano. Although the SV do-thingie might be better in mono.
BTW I love the "3 GOOD sounds" approach!:thu:

Electro 3 all the way. The SV1 has too many downsides, click stopped fx dials are a really bad idea, action is too stiff (but the piano and rhodes are very good) but the organ is just not good enough for this price point, (plus you are at Korgs mercy for new sounds which they update once in a blue moon) whereas the sounds in the Nord are actually amazing from the off. Organ, piano, rhodes and clav, this it the board. Take it from me ive tested them all extensively. Kurweil, again, suffers from an overbloated interface, stunning pianos, rhodes and organs not so good. Dont mess around, just grab the E3 im tellin ya!!oke:

Exactly. Having thought about it overnight, the P120 piano is fine. I'm thinking about something that has a decent B3, and I'll probably keep the P120 for piano.
Budget is an issue. I just really can't afford 2k for a keyboard at the moment.
Does anybody know about the organ (and possibly EP) sounds on the Yamaha mm6? I like the price...
