|Type||Prototype for Herbert Vianna|
|Year||Most likely 2000|
In 2000, Mark Knopfler did his promotion tour for the Sailing
to Philadelphia. He also visited Brazil and appeared in the program
Video Show on 20th November 2000. The host of the show is
Vianna, a Brazilian singer, songwriter
and guitarist mainly known for his work with rock band
Sucesso". Herbert brought his own
guitar to the interview and asked Mark to play a bit on it (without an
amplifier). This is a screenshot of that moment. So, this is actually not
Mark's guitar but I thought it would still be nice to list it here.
The guitar is especially made for Herbert Vianna by the Brazilian luthier Antonio Pedro. On the headstock you can clearly see the initials "HV". Click here for an article about Antonio Pedro and a relation with Mark Knopfler.
