Mark Knopfler is one of rock's greatest guitarists,  from his stadium-rock days in Dire Straits to his 20-year solo career. With a stunning new album, Down The Road Wherever poised to launch, we join Mark in his West London studio - along with his pick of his favourite guitars - to talk about the tones, inspirations and techniques that went into the new record and his seasoned take on how to play guitar beautifully.  With pages of reference-grade photography of the most famous of his guitars, including the National Style O resonator that graced the cover of the first million-selling album, Brothers In Arms. Elsewhere in this packed issue we review a ton of stunning new gear from Xotic California Classic XSC-2 electric to Godin's toneful but affordable Summit Classic SGs. With expert lessons on Van Halen's soloing style, interviews with Steve Hillage, Khruangbin and much more it's a must-read, special edition for all guitar lovers.
