On 20th April 2008, Mark Knopfler played in Oslo
during the Kill to get Crimson tour. Before the show, the guys from
G-Sharp presented Mark a couple of G# guitars, one with a rosewood and one
with a maple neck.
On the official G-Sharp site, this can be read: In Guy Fletchers words: “I'm back at home from an evening with MK. He had a good play with the G# and thought it was excellent, especially the resonance and overall feel and build quality of the instrument.“
Mark made several suggestions to improve the guitar. G-Sharp says: "It is
quite overwhelming having suggestions from a guitarist of his caliber on how
to improve my design (thank you very much, Mark Knopfler). The future will
show if customers are willing to pay a bit more to have these improvements.
I would, however, be more than pleased to make a Mark Knopfler signature
model including these features, should that be possible !!"
