Mark Knopfler’s Rickenbacker of Portobello Belle live in 1981

Posted on 6 CommentsPosted in Dire Straits/ Mark Knopfler live pictures and videos, Guitars, Mark Knopfler gear

On the Making movies tour in 1981, Mark Knopfler played a Rickenbacker guitar on Portobello Belle. To my knowledge only one single picture exists with this guitar which is the one below.

Since I have this picture at a rather high resolution, I also put in an enlarged version with just that guitar.

I would be lying if I said I am an expert on Rickenbacker guitars, so feel free to suggest which model it is using the comment function.
