Andrea Valeri: Sultans of Swing on Acoustic

I remember when Dire Straits came out with the song “Sultans of Swing.” and I though…

cool guitar playing.

relaxed and such a nice easy feel.

As history would have it, Mark Knopfler would end up as a guitar hero, even doing gigs and stuff with Chet Atkins.

But what makes this Andrea Valeri video all so special is, he’s doing more than just playing the lead part.

And the tone! Just beautiful.

Obviously a custom made guitar… wonder what make?




  1. I will check further but I think that is a Martin custom shop– possibly a signature model.

  2. Close it is a Maton from Australia. See BTW you forgot to post this on the Facebook page.
