Mark Knopfler 1958 Les Paul, a precise replica of Mark’s original ‘58, a favored live and recording companion of one of the most revered players and writers of our time. As multi-platnum hit makers Dire Straits entered the second and most successful phase of their career, singer, songwriter and lead guitarist Mark Knopfler was looking for a new sound to change things up, and he found it in the powerful tone and sultry playing feel of a stunning original ’58 Les Paul ’Burst. This guitar's thick, meaty tone logged the signature riffs of many a hit, and became a cornerstone of this influential British guitarist's sound as a result. The Mark Knopfler 1958 Les Paul is handcrafted by Gibson Custom after intense hands-on analysis of the original, to match the neck profile, top carve, look, feel, and tone of an exalted original ’58 ’Burst. Its lusciously faded sunburst finish (in a maximum of 100 hand-aged and 150 VOS guitars), select tonewoods, period-correct nickel hardware and plastics, tubeless Historic truss-rod, hide glue neck construction, carefully wound Custom Bucker PAF pickups, and more all add up to a guitar that—with Mark Knopfler's full final approval—comes closer to the original than you could ever imagine.
