A Legendary Musician.
A Legendary Instrument.

As frontman and guitarist for Dire Straits, Mark Knopfler became recognized as one of the best. Throughout his career, his passion and unique playing style are truly legendary.

As a teenager, Mark always dreamed of getting an electric guitar. He pestered his dad for one, but the family could not afford it, so he made do. As Mark puts it, 'There’s nothing wrong with waiting for the good things in life'. When Mark finally got a 1958 Gibson Les Paul Custom in 1995, he quickly realized it was a step above everything else, and it soon became his guitar of choice.

Series One Includes: Limited Edition 1:4 scale replica 1958 Gibson Les Paul, nestled in an embroidered guitar case. 32GB Mark Knopfler engraved USB key which includes Best of Recordings.

Craftsmanship. Precision. Detail.

The 1958 Les Paul was built with exquisite attention to detail, precision sculpting and unique playing characteristics, that subsequent editions of the guitar have not come close to emulating.

The Legends Series has taken this same approach when creating this Limited-Edition, 1:4-scale, reproduction of the guitar that set the standard by which others are judged. From the unique pick-up assembly to the headstock, to the tuning pegs and the back covers, we have been painstaking and accepted nothing less than Gibson Guitars would have when creating the legendary ’58.
