Did some further checking and you could get the 500 then get a Yammie P-80 for around $500-600 and save the extra $600. Yes, you would have two keyboards, but I like that idea because sometimes (like when I play keyboard for the local community college pep band or am doing local community theatre) I don't need the weight and size of 88 keys. Space can be an issue in those sitations, so just having a 61 key version for quick jobs is kind of nice.

Exactly!!!! you could save a crap load of money by getting the PA-500 and using an inexpensive 88 key controller. Besides.., clearly the 588 wasn't made with the giggin musician in mind.

There are some very good 88 key controllers out there that are easy on your wallet too.
