Ronnie ordered his second Raya 6 Baritone from The Rolling Stones' Big Bang Tour in October 2005. In April 2006 Ronnie bought a Raya 12 Baritone and in the Spring of 2007, Ronnie got his hands on Raya Blue Lite, which he used on the Stones’ Bigger Bang Tour, summer 2007.
Versouls are now part of the machinery of the guitarist of the band that defined Rock´n´Roll as we know it.
Versoul celebrated Ronnie Wood's 60th birthday on June 1st, 2007. Kari Nieminen and guitar tech guru Alan Rogan met Ronnie Wood at his home in Richmond, London. During the visit Ronnie bought his ninth 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 Ronnie’s Versoul Raya Blue Lite was a major part of the band's concerts at O2 Arena in London in November and in 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:
''Jumpin’ Jack Flash'' & ''Satisfaction.''
