Mark Knopfler Discussion Forum / Re: Mark's 58 burst - amazing revelations!

How can the pricing have anything to do with Mark and his management? That's all up to Gibson and later on the resellers, who are free to charge whatever they want, like it or not. (For 20k you can get a new custom-built Les Paul-style guitar built by the very best boutique luthiers.)

Oh boy, that's not a fair price at all. What were they thinking? It's like I'd point in the sky and chose a random number for a price. The whole Gibson thing is so cringy I barely understand how Mark said OK to all this mess. No mention of the history of the guitar, as proved by this thread, too much flame in the wood from the pictures that I can see, I'm sure I'd find more flaws if I had the instrument, but I'll never have it because the pricing is awful. And resellers are absolutely insane, let's put 20 grand for a brand new guitar that was released 5 years ago just because it's rare. Amazing. I truly hate Mark's signature instruments policy.

I very much agree and consider this an important conclusion and input for MK and his management.

The author already messaged me, he will include the references at a second edition.

In the end what's important is that info reach the fans, but credit the sources is important. Sometimes you can forget one when you are working.

Shit happens sometimes but I'm glad you both could sort things out at the end.

Another new video update. Just wanted to upload this little solo from "There'll Be Some Changes Made", Mark Knopfler's 2nd solo to be precise, the one where Chet Atkins said "Pretty good but you're no Mark Knopfler". That line cracks me up every time and the lick Mark then proceeds to play is insane! Typical MK-style lick, always wanted to play it. And it's a great opportunity to test the new 60FPS video. Enjoy!

Is there a specific gig you remember vividly (maybe the crowd, set list, energy etc)?
"Well Nimes and Verona, both beautiful Roman buildings"

could you PLEASE do another video on your version of SULTANS OF SWING, Basel 1992. of all the previous straits drummers, you totally nailed it and is the best version ever!
"I’ll put it on the list. I don’t actually think i ‘nailed’ it. I think I understand better how it should be played now"

I always thought that his sultans version was a total disaster.

+1 on that

fair point, it's just pity fans can't get these guitars because collectors buy them up. This price certainly won't hold. He will get max 8-9k Euro for it, if he is lucky. Unless a buyer won't be able to discern the difference between the VOS, aged and aged&signed model
