Mark Knopfler’s 1938 Gibson Advanced Jumbo

Mark used this guitar on “Speedway at Nazareth” and “Wanderlust” from the 2000 album Sailing to Philadelphia, and on “Before Gas and TV” and “Remembrance Day” from the 2009 album Get Lucky.

Mark’s guitar is one of only 300 hundred Advanced Jumbos ever made before they were replaced with the now better-known Gibson J-200 Super Jumbo. The guitar features Sitka spruce top, and Brazilian rosewood back and sides.
