I haven't seen before.

Me neither. Great picture of our hero.  :thumbsup

I was waiting for a reaction :)
I think the photo is from this year.

I think is from 2019, I think I see that pic in the local hero musical program or in any interview from 2019
You might get lucky, now and then

Ha, yet another unwinnable prize draw. Thanks, I know it's a good cause, but I don't get winning a guitar just for putting in 5 pounds, that's ridiculous. And means that anybody, including a non-musician, can win this guitar. And eventually, end up either on eBay or on display somewhere. Great moves, Mark :lol

do you rememeber when there was that guitar competition about 10 years ago, the winner won 1 lesson with mark,
the 5 finalists were chosen very badly by the company (unrelated to MK) that ran the competition,
only 1 or 2 were good, 99% of the best players didn't reach the final and MK listened only to those 5 ones, unbelievable

Yes, I remember it, but I was too young at the time to participate and could barely play guitar back then, let alone record it in at least some quality... But as I remember, the winner was this cool guy who went ahead and wrote a great article on the day he met MK, it was a very genuine and respectful article, never ever have I expressed any envy towards this person.

This prize draw, however, is a complete free-for-all and defies common sense. The possibility of winning a guitar won't draw me into this charity because I know that I won't win. And MK thought that giving away guitar is enough, he could at least say something about the charity itself. Anyway, I'm not a fan of all these auctions and I'm surprised they're successful.

yes the winner was 1 of the 2 guys who were good, the very unfair thing was that MK didn't choose much at all, he listened only to the 5 finalists and chose the winner, 99% of the players were left out

It’s a good cause so worth a £5 lottery IMO.

It would be great if the guitar came with an amplifier!

I think this should be taken in the spirit it is meant, so good on Mark for helping yet another charity, the fact you can win the guitar is a bonus, raising the money for charity is the point.
Please check out my MK/DS forum:

Knopfler, Oldfield and Gilmour is all the guitar I need.

I see it like you!
It's a great gesture from Mark to donate this beautiful guitar for a good cause. I hope that a lot of money will be raised to help these people.
This is all the heaven we've got right here where we are in our shangri-la.
