Mark Knopfler’s Martin HD-40MK

This is the first Mark Knopfler signature Martin, made for a short period of time in 2002. A total of around 250 guitars were made.

The guitar featured an Alpine Spruce top, Indian Rosewood back and sides, Mahogany neck, and Ebony fingerboard 42-style Snowflake inlays and Mark’s signature between the 19th and 20th frets.

Mark used this guitar for the recording of the entirety of The Ragpicker’s Dream album in 2002.
