well, guitars not my favourite subject to talk, but I think he's playing a Gibson SG mid-60ies black during Two young lovers...

Its not a Gibson that's for sure...

For some reason I haven't seen this guitar before.. :)

Wish we had more video from the early 80ies so we could see it in action! :)

6 photos by Colin Bodiam. 2 of them (picture 5 and 6) slightly different from the ones already known.

Colin wrote:
- Picture 3 and 5 "But they were pleased with the new song, "Portobello Belle ", Mark had just written and were itching to rehearse it. If I recall correctly Mark and the boys had had a bit of a late one the night before. Perhaps it shows!"
- Picture 1,4 and 6 "Dire Straits down by the waterline in Greenwich, summer, 1978.Between Thames barges, Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits pulls a face for the camera, 1978"
- Picture 2 "Considered for a poster, Dire Straits prior to rehearsing new song, "Portobello Belle", Wood Wharf, Greenwich"
