Three faces of a star you can see everywhereYou can't get better than a "piano-Fender." It's the most used of all the electric pianos. It's originality resides in the principle of classic function applied to new materials. the strings are replaced here by lamelles* or "diapasons" which have an extremely pure vibration. Its musical qualities make it the greatest instrument for modern pianists.
The answer varies from year to year, with later models being more lightweight due to the use of less wood & more plastic. The Mark V was the lightest of all at approximately 100 lbs (45 kg). From my own experience, a 1978 Suitcase 73 Mark I has a piano top weighing about 130 lbs (60 kg) and an amp bottom weighing 110 lbs (50 kg). With the lid on, the piano is 45" x 23" x 10" (115 cm x 60 cm x 25 cm), and the amp is about the same width & length, but depth is a little bigger (12" or 30 cm). If you know the size and weight of your own Rhodes, please post it by replying here!!!BTW, since most people are asking about this in order to have the piano shipped somewhere, you should know about the inherent risks (i.e. don't just stick an address label on the side and hope it makes it there OK). Read these shipping instructions before you do anything: http://ep-forum.com/smf/index.php?topic=511
