    This is the accepted story from reading all the latter Stones books.
    Still love to know more about that Flying V though.

    I just joined this forum today after discovering via Google this huge thread that was based on my original article I had written in November of 2007 for Stones Planet Fanzine, giving the low-down on Keith's guitars. Both Rich Henry (from this forum) & Johnny Starbuck (backline with the Stones) helped me write that article. I am happy to see that such a huge thread evolved & I am glad to spread the word about Keith's guitars, but wanted to toot my own horn so to speak since it was never mentioned that all this information and the photos were courtesy of myself, Rich and Johnny and appear at my website The Keith Shrine. Here is the direct link to the original article. I am a Les Paul Studio 60's tribute owner, as well as a Gibson Ronnie Wood limited edition J-200 owner (and I also own an Ernie Ball Music Man Silhouette like Keith played with the Winos & in '89 with the Stones, as well as an old early 80's Martin-Sigma acoustic.). Thanks for adding all the additional photos and commentary regarding Keef's guitars.

    Saw a exhibit, a special display of Rolling Stones photos.

    I remember the placards all stating these were from 72.

    There is no NO doubt Keith is the original rock star. Those photos tell a million stories.

    I played around in photoshop and gave the photo some colour and here it actually looks like there are some flame around the switch. But it's not CSI technology:D
