Marc Ford - engraved Les Paul in natural finish

Hi,

 

Eventually someone of you can help me:

 

I am looking for some information of Marc Ford's "old" Les Paul in natural finish and especially the engraving of it.

 

This guitar can be seen on many pictures and clips without engraving

I can remember seeing live footage from the early nineties (around their 'Amorica' tour 1994) where Marc plays this guitar and from this time on it shows a kind of engraving at the left front side.

 

The subject of the engraving was a psychedelic painting of a girl resp. something similar like on their Tall-cover:

Sorry if I am not 100% right and accurate but that's everything I can remember of it so far

 

Somehow this guitar disappered and I never saw it later again.

 

Do you eventually have any information about it? That would be amazing!!!

 

Many thanks for your help!

I believe he played a late 80's/early 90's LP Standard in Natural at one point, but I've never seen it engraved. If you can find a pic with the engraving I'd love to see it(Marc is one of my favs!)

 

HEY, I COULD FINALLY FIND A VIDEO WITH THE GUITAR:

In this clip you can see some rough engraving around the toggle switch at 9:22 and from 9:35 at the left side of the guitar. Unfortunately it is not the best video quality...

 

Also in this video from 48:00 on you will find footage of this guitar.

 

 

Unfortunately I could nevery find any detailed picture of it.
