At the Mark Knopfler & Friends charity shows in July 2002, Mark used it for Can't be satisfied. Mark got this guitar as a present at the end of the Golden Heart tour, 4th August 1996. It is engraved on the back with the 'Golden Heart' emblem, initials and date. See also this article, taken from www.beltona.net.

Additional info
According to this article, Mark Knopfler also owns a Beltona Mandola (Mandolin). I don't have a picture of that actual guitar, but it is most likely something like the picture on the left which is taken from www.beltona.net. I never read or saw anything about this before and I am not 100% sure if that info from the Beltona site is accurate regarding this instrument being part of Mark's collection.
