I've been eyeing up a Vintage Vibe Piano. I love the sound of a Rhodes, but also would prefer a new instrument over one that's already 40+ years old. I'd love feedback from anyone who has one. Some specific questions:

64 or 73 keys? To anybody who has the smaller model, any regrets?

Classic or Deluxe? The latter is ~$2k more expensive but I'm not sure I can hear the difference on YouTube videos and I don't think I'd be able to try either prior to purchase.

I won't be budgeting ~$5k for their console/amp. Does anyone have a great, not five thousand dollar amp to recommend that would pair well?

Some users on musicplayer forum do have them, I think it is a good place to ask. But probably somebody there also has.

They had a massive 20% off the Deluxe model last Black Friday which made it almost the same price as the Classic model. I started an order for one but backed out due to the uncertainty of the value of Sterling due to the UK’s leaving the EU.

They usually do a 4th July 15% off everything so I am holding out for that and may well get a Classic 73.

Should pair well with a Fender Twin Reverb - those were the amps used for testing in the Rhodes factory back in the day, at least for the passive Stage models.
