Lot Essay


Acquired in 2007, Mark Knopfler told us that the Draleon was occasionally used for backstage fan meets and greets and also as a guitar placed in hotel rooms when he was on tour. According to Guy Fletcher, who owns a similar Draelon in a blonde finish, the guitars were made by luthier Gordon Roberts for Draleon.
