Mark Knopfler’s Pensa MK-90

This is one of Mark’s more recent guitars. It’s basically a modified version of the Pensa MK model with a blue finish, and P-90 style pickups (therefore the MK-90 name). Mark was seen with the guitar in the Guitar Stories documentary, and he used it occasionally live during the Privateering tour on “Kingdom of Gold”.

Based on the official specs posted on the Pensa website, the guitar features a chambered swamp ash body, maple neck with rosewood fretboard, Gotoh locking tuners, and two Lind Fralin P-90 pickups.
