Topic: John Monteleone, Luthier

Someone mentioned a guitar maker who made one especially for Mark Knopfler, but the luthier's name wasn't mentioned. Here's a nice clip of Mark talking about meeting John Monteleone, how Monteleone offered to make Mark a guitar, and a beautiful ballad Mark wrote about him:

I never get tired of this one!
