|Brand||Dobro (Gibson era)|
On 11th July 2007, Mark
Knopfler was made an
honorary Doctor of Music at Sunderland
University for his outstanding achievements in the field of music. This
picture is taken on that day.
Dobro is a registered trademark, now owned by Gibson Guitar Corporation. When Gibson acquired the trademark in 1994, the company announced that it would defend its right to Dobro's exclusive use.
The body of the guitar is almost identical to the standard model on this picture. The one Mark holds is engraved and has big markers on the neck. Dobro released this high model as a kind of deluxe serie.
