Profile of Fender Mark Knopfler Stratocaster

Mark Knopfler’s Stratocaster® guitar features a ’57-style ash body and a vintage tinted ’62 C-shaped maple neck with rosewood fingerboard. His unmistakable tone comes from three Texas Special™ single-coil pickups with five-way switching. Fender/Gotoh vintage tuners and an American vintage tremolo system round out this sultan of swing.
