    A buddy of mine saw the Stones in Minneapolis, and mentioned this odd guitar that Ronnie was playing quite a bit.

    I’m stumped - anyone know what it is?

    Interesting body shape but the reverse headstock leaves me a little cold

    Thanks folks - you solved a mystery for me. I was really curious about the blue LED...sounds like it's just decorative - uber cool, too

    I'm a big fan of some things that come out of Finland, in particular things made by Lapua. That, however, is definitely not my cup of tea.......

    Did he go back in time and see them before Charlie passed on? Just joking, Ronnie must have had and played that guitar for a while.

    The top looks like very high quality Formica to me.

    This video explains the guitar



    I wondered what the blue thing is - it's a light. And the top is gold leaf.

    My mother was a strange thing that came out of Finland.

    So is my Flaxwood Voima (Power).

    The perforated sides are really cool.
