I always thought these guitars were magical, in a way.” - Mark Knopfler
Throughout his career, Mark Knopfler has demonstrated his mastery again and again. Rock, pop, country, blues. His talent is inimitable, and his ability to make a guitar ‘sing’ transcends genre.
Take his National steel guitars, for example. The 1937 Duolian has a distinctive sound, one that became common to many of us through the Brothers In Arms album. But Mark’s love of steel guitars goes back much earlier, to the days when he played in a band called The Duolian Finger Pickers.
CRAFTSMANSHIP. PRECISION. DETAIL.
The brass-bodied guitar has become irrevocably linked to the album that it’s known as the Dire Straits version, a reference that instantly calls to mind a musical milestone for so many, filled with distinctive hooks and unforgettable lyrics.
The Legends Series captures some of that mystique in miniature, embodying the same care and attention that distinguishes the original. Polished to a high shine and adorned with a distinct Hawaiian motif of palm trees and mountains, this Legends Series replica is a true tribute to the artist, the album, and a guitar that has become an icon.
