Get the tone
Ford has used a variety of guitars over the years, including a 1958 Gibson ES335, Sakashta and Baker custom builds, a 1958 Stratocaster, a Fender Esprit Ultra, and a 1960 Telecaster. For backline, he favours Dumble Overdrive Special and Fender Super Reverb amps, D’Addario .010-.046 gauge strings and D’Addario heavy gauge picks. To try to duplicate his tone, use the neck or bridge positions on a humbucker equipped guitar and use a lightly distorted tube amp sound. Ultimately, though, Robben’s sound comes down to his inimitable touch and feel.
