I love Mark Knopfler's tone in the Album 'Alchemy' - it is a LIVE album, music 'Sultans of Swing'. I would love if somebody could listen to that and help me, because I would like do get that tone.
I have a Gibson Les Paul and an Ibanez artcore with Gibson Classic pickups. I think I can't get that tone with these guitars.
The problem is I don't like the design of stratos.
So I think about getting an Epiphone Wilshire with minis (http://www.epiphone.com/Products/Designer/Wilshire.aspx) and I think about putting the Seymour Duncan SM-1 mini.
Do you think I could get close to that tone?
