The CLM1 is a solid body electric guitar produced for Hoshino Gakki and sold under the Ibanez brand. It is a signature guitar of Cameron Liddell of the English metalcore band Asking Alexandria.

The CLM1 is based on the ARZ series, although it features a custom neck that is 6mm (0.24") longer than the standard ARZ neck. It was introduced in 2013 alongside the BBM1 for Liddell's bandmate, Ben Bruce. A certificate of authenticity signed by Liddell was included with each guitar.

Liddell said of the guitar, "[i]f you're looking for that perfect crunchy, crisp rhythm style tone, then look no further, my CLM1 is the right guitar for you. It has everything you could possibly want in a guitar. Combining that bone crushing low range and high end bite, with the sheer elegance and complete sex appeal this guitar has."

Despite the fact that Liddell is left-handed and plays a left-handed guitar, no lefty version of his signature model was offered.

The CLM1 was discontinued after 2015. It is the only signature model for Liddell that Ibanez has produced.
