Not sure I've ever heard the Roland GW-8, but between the Yamaha and Korg, it's a no brainer for pianos and organs: Yamaha MM-6.

I wouldn't go with any of those. I'd go with a 61-key Korg M50. Better sounds than the X50, higher polyphony and more features overall than the MM6. You can find them under $1000 if you're willing to go with open box items from a bunch of sites (zZounds and Nova Musik both have them, just to name two places).

A used Nord Electro 2? Great organs, rhodes, organs, and effects. The AC piano may be just fine for your needs. It's about as light as you could hope for.

 

I use a Roland VK8. The organs are more fun I think because its drawbars are real drawbars, not up/down buttons. Its piano gets me by. Its rhodes sucks though, and its wurli isn't much better. It's not very light either. But the drawbars are to die for; they're what keep me from selling it and getting a Nord.
