Dire Straits star Mark Knopfler is to auction more than 120 of his guitars and amps, with 25% of the proceeds going to charity.
The sale includes the 1983 Les Paul that Knopfler used to record the hits Money For Nothing and Brothers In Arms and which he played on stage at Live Aid in 1985.
Mark has said he wants the instruments to find loving homes. “I hope that they all get played, I don’t think they do too well living in a case all their lives.”
The collection, which will be auctioned at Christie’s in London next January, spans the entirety of Knopfler’s 50-year career.
