Marc Ford Signature Model | Asher Lap Steel Guitar
Marc Ford Signature Model | Asher Lap Steel Guitar 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 for many years slowly refining the model, creating a high performance guitar with grit, tone and style. Included in its superior construction and details are a ¼ sawn maple volute neck for exceptional stability, ebony faceplate, top of the line hardware, and easy access truss-rod. The pickups are created by Tom Short and were tested on stage by Ford numerous times until these "Sweet 90's" balanced the vintage tones with the natural resonance of the guitar itself.
