Comment from Pete Turner on this particular guitar: "I had the opportunity to fashion the top from a magnificent piece of old stock Madagascan rosewood. I complemented this with an Indian rosewood back, sides, and neck, with a contrasting flame maple binding. The fretboard was ebony."

The spring 2013 newsletter from Pete Turner guitar mentions:

"Phil Harris of Harris Hire loaned his Pete Turner Marrakech Madagascar to Glenn, Mark Knopfler’s guitar tech. It never came back ………. Mark was so enamoured that he bought it! Nice to think that maybe one day another resonator will appear on a Mark Knopfler album cover."
