Ronnie Wood has reportedly splashed out on a guitar once played by Jimi Hendrix for his girlfriend Ekaterina Ivanova.

The rocker, who has been giving Ivanova guitar lessons, spared no expense to buy his lover a vintage axe, paying a whopping $20,000 (€14,891) for the instrument, according to The Sun.

And Wood was said to have personalised the gift by inscribing it with his and her initials next to the message: "Sweet as a daisy, sweet as a pearl, you'll always be my kitten."

A source tells the newspaper: "She fell in love with the guitar before Christmas. But rather than buying it while she was with him, Ronnie wanted to wait and surprise her.

"He loves to treat her with gifts and tokens of his affection. He has been spending a small fortune on her, which she is more than happy to take."
