Don Grosh has been producing guitars since 1993.
The Electrajet series was launched in 2008. It's a custom built guitar.
Mark used this guitar on Piper to the end during the Get lucky tour 2010, Privateering tour 2013 and Tracker tour 2015. On the Privateering tour 2013, Mark also used the guitar to play Yon two crows. According to Guy Fletcher, this guitar was also used on the studio track Oklahoma Ponies.
Glenn Saggers (Mark Knopfler's guitar technician) says in an interview in Guitarist magazine (April 2015), that Mark actually has two Don Grosh guitars, but I don't have a picture of the other one.
In the magazine
Guitarist (issue 392, April 2015), Glenn Saggers tells a bit about
Mark's guitars. He mentions: "This Les Paul (the '58) has a lot of
output; the neck pickup has a lot of output aswell. More so than any other
Les Paul that I've had to deal with. But this one is a bit of a beast. And
so is the Don Grosh guitar, the Electrajet. Mark has two. And the main white
one, that has the Fralins in it, just like the Pensa. That has got a lot of
output to it, too."
So, Mark has two Electrajets and the one on the picture is most likely Mark's other one. Picture is taken during Piper to the end in Boston, 9th October 2015.
