No.17 sold for a reasonable price, but like Dusty has always said they are worth what anyone wants to pay for one..

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/134161414018?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=lBEH3D0nRvm&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=FDnWw-_hRta&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY

Says listing ended but I'm not sure it actually sold?

The guy talks some rubbish in his ad, he has no clue if it was the first in the UK, or if MK specially selected tonewoods, lol.

At the risk of turning into Quizzy, prices for these are now totally nuts! £3,750 is ridiculous.

Well, they don't do new ones anymore, so I guess price is only going to increase.
You might get lucky, now and then

It's an interesting question. Same goes for vinyl records. The age of people who are interested in MK is going up all the time and eventually they will die off. Similarly, there is a lot less interest in younger people for guitars than there has been in the past.

So at some point, there will be very few people who are interested in owning a Knopfler guitar, or a Clapton guitar or a Jimmy Page guitar, and values will likely fall.

Same was happening with Elvis memorabilia but the recent film might reverse that trend.

It'll increase again once he's dead though.  ;)

This has been said many times about my other passion, motorcycles of the 1970s/1980s. Like some guitars motorcycles of this era have shot up in value over the last few years, guys in their 50s/60s re living their youth maybe but will the arse drop out of the market when we are all in homes/dead?
I doubt it, there is still a strong demand for Brough Superior, Vincent Black Shadow etc and the original owners will be long gone, same goes for 54 Strats 59 LPs etc.
Quality /rare products will always be in demand.

The same with Mod scooter scene. Lambrettas and Vespas peaked about 10 years ago. The guys into that scene from the 80s revival are in their 60s and 70s now so demand has fallen for vintage scooters.

Did you guys see Fender's new offering; a Fender Stratocaster American Vintage II 1961 in Fiesta Red.
That basically even more a Mark Knopfler strat than the official signature one ;-)

The signature model delivers his modern tone. The AVRi ii does the early dire straits thing. The difference is quite striking in person. The modern sound is fat and honky in the mids. The vintage sound is much thinner but more transparent to the note.

For those that want the modern sound I suggest to order a team built custom shop Strat. They still offer ash bodies (which are key to get the tone in combination with the TX specials). Note that ash is getting increasingly rare.

Beautiful guitar, but prices have gone through the roof.
