I'm no virtuoso, but I care alot about (and can get alot out of) a responsive, quick but heavy-ish, keyboard. (action comes up for me mostly with any straight-ahead playing, where it's nice to have leg room for fast action, but also just sweet, nuanced playing (ie backing up a jazz singer)

I'm looking to buy a new (or used) stage piano (88) for playing out.
I'd be grateful for any help here on the 'action' or playability from a plain piano player perspective --

Putting $price aside entirely for now, any suggestions re best things to think about/go try?
I need at least::
1 a great piano (or 2)
2 great rhodes options (couple standouts)
3 a B3 that wont drive me crazy. (tricky sometimes)

thank you for any thoughts/suggestions you might offer me, esp any experience (good/bad) covering different types of gigs/material with single keyboard.

Any budget or weight constraints? Do you prefer drawbar control for the organ, or do you just need some common presets?
