Ronnies Guitar with the Blue Circle

What kind of guitar is that, and what's the purpose of the blue circle, just decoration?

Did you guys notice Keith point to the lens, I think during Satisfaction?

Loved their interaction last night!

Is there a musical purpose for the light? Or is it just cool to look at

some random online pix through google search

I doubt there's any musical purpose behind it. It's a light, an LED light on the body of the guitar isn't going to change the sound in any way.

If you go to the Versoul site there is a story by the luthier of the blue light guitar where he basically says he was on an airplane and just had the idea for a blue light, and so he did it. So it sounds like it's just decoration.

Plus they have this picture on their site...

What kind of pickups in this thing? (Too lazy to go to their website). It sounded good, though.

Humbuckers, but more voiced like Filtertrons, or P90's with less hiss and treble.

Interesting, thanks.... reminds of a few years back whne one of the guitar magazines had a "design a guitar contest"... and the winner was this silly looking thing with 4-5 mini, multi-colored lava lamps mounted on the front.... I actually sent in an idea that was functional... but I guess they wanted show, not go.

Found this page about the maker of this guitars, Kari Nieminen: [www.hs.fi]

Some Stones content there:

Quote
Ronnie Wood of The Rolling Stones has bought eight guitars from him, and Keith Richards has two.
...
Soon Roger Daltrey walked into a store in Santa Monica and became infatuated with Nieminen’s acoustic guitar. “He was so excited that he let me use his name for free in marketing. He also spoke about my guitars to Alan Rogan, the guitar technician of The Rolling Stones. Rogan recommended Nieminen’s guitars to Ronnie Wood. “Ronnie later invited me to his home in Richmond. It was a hunting lodge of some former English king - that is to say, a castle. I gave him a guitar for his 60th birthday, because he was such a good customer. Wood invited Nieminen and his family to a Rolling Stones gig at Helsinki’s Olympic Stadium in August last year. “We spent 13 hours there, as the guitar technicians showed us their equipment before the concert.” Keith Richard had the biggest back room. “The big room was made into something like a home. There was a corner for the whole band to rehearse in, with small amplifiers, a Johnny Cash poster, an Elvis cardboard cutout, a Hank Williams recording playing, and a snooker table.” Two ten-string guitars were commissioned for Richards. “They are like 12-strings, with the lower two missing. He plays them with open tuning.” Wood uses Nieminen’s Versoul guitars at concerts a great deal. There is no information on what guitars Richards uses on stage.

In addition Keith has got three Versoul Custom guitars all acoustic 10 string models with black top finish.
