The Pianoteq Rhodes is great, but if you want free options, here are two 
more to consider:

The MDA plugin set (ported to LV2 here: 
http://drobilla.net/software/mda-lv2/) includes MDA EPiano, which is a 
nice, generic eletric piano. It's light on resources and it's quite 
adjustable, which is great, though I do think it sounds a little dull 
somehow. Definitely worth installing, though.

The other option is the Learjeff jRhodes3 soundfont 
(http://learjeff.net/sf/sf.html). It's only 76MB, so it's a bit lacking 
in velocity layers compared to a good commercial sample library, but it 
still sounds great. Works fine in Fluidsynth/Qsynth, though I used sfZed 
to convert it to SFZ format to use with the Linuxsampler plugin.
