Marc Ford Signature Model

“The idea was to create a guitar that married the best of a Strat and my Les Paul Special....what we got was a guitar I truly love.”
-Marc Ford

The Marc Ford Signature Model guitar was designed to seamlessly incorporate the tone and vibe of Ford's Les Paul Special with the comforts and playability of his go-to Stratocaster.

Ford and Asher worked on this model for his tour with The Black Crowes and created a high performance guitar with grit, tone and a unique retro style.

Included in its superior construction and details are a tight-grain rock maple volute neck for exceptional stability, ebony faceplate, top-of-the-line hardware,
and easy access truss-rod.

The tone of this guitar is sweet and woody, with a great balance of grit and
clarity at high stage volumes.
