The Rolling Stones' Ronnie Wood bought two VERSOUL guitars late 2003. BUXOM and HENRY (gold leaf top) and and added his Versoul collection with RESOSUN and RAYA 6 BARITONE guitars in autumn 2004.
Ronnie ordered his second RAYA 6 BARITONE from The Rolling Stones' Big Bang Tour in October 2005. On April 2006 Ronnie bought a Raya 12 Baritone and on spring 2007 Ronnie got his hands on Raya Blue Lite, which he used on Bigger Bang Tour on summer 2007.
Versouls are now part of the machinery of the guitarist of the band that defined Rock´n´Roll as we've learned to know it.
VERSOUL celebrated Ronnie Wood's 60th Birthday on the 1st of JUNE 2007. Kari Nieminen and Alan Rogan a guitar tech guru met Ronnie Wood at his home in Richmond, London. During the visit Ronnie bought his 9th Versoul: a Buxom 12 string Baritone Acoustic guitar, and received another as a gift: a Versoul Buxom 12 string Custom guitar.
The Rolling Stones celebrated their 50th Anniversary in 2012 and Versoul Raya Blue Lite was in major part on band's concerts at O2 Arena in London on November and on US shows in Brooklyn and Newark.
Ronnie opened the shows with his Raya Blue Lite guitar on ''Get Off Of My Cloud'' and continued on two encores;
''Jumping Jack Flash'' & ''Satisfaction''.
