As one of two founding brothers in Dire Straits, a solo artist, and a film composer, Mark Knopfler has been writing and recording songs for nearly 35 years. Knopfler’s latest record Privateering—the first double-album of his career—is out now on Universal, and we’ve got a one-of-a-kind giveaway in support of his new music: a red Fender Stratocaster signed by Knopfler. Yes, you read that correctly, an honest-to-goodness guitar. All you have to do is send an e-mail with your mailing address (U.S. addresses only, sorry) to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to win. ARV of the guitar is $800, but the autograph is priceless. Contest ends Nov. 1, 2013; winner will be contacted by e-mail on or about Nov. 2, 2013.
