Name this keyboard

What's the keyboard player in Jack White's band playing in the first clip?

See Jack White's Battle of the Sexes on 'Saturday Night Live' | SPIN

Looks and sounds nice.

I had to do a double take, with Jack White being a purist and all. Curious why she didnt just use a rhodes or wurly.

'Cos they sound great, but proper vintage ones are an expensive pain-in-the-arse to buy and maintain? Whereas a Korg SV (or Nord or Roland or whatever else takes your fancy) pretty much just comes out of its case and works, even if the sound isn't perfect.

I mean I love my old Yamaha D85 - OK it's no classic like a B3 or anything, but it's a nice old piece of gear from its day. But I wouldn't even think of taking it out to play live, even if I had a couple of tame gorillas on hand to do all the lifting and shifting (damn thing weighs around 300lbs or so).

I figured that. Not to mention the weight of the rhodes.

I cant help but thinking though, didnt Jack record most of his albums with the White Stripes with gear pre 1972? You'd think that he'd have a mk i rhodes or two to take out on the road. I figure he'd be pretty adament about that sort of thing judging from interviews hes given in the past.
