Francisco Rodriguez is a luthier I met at the 2015 Holy Grail Guitar Show. It happens he is not only a luthier but also a guitar tech once in a while. So he gets the experience of maintaining and managing the guitars he built on the road. Francisco is the guitar tech for the Dire Straits tribute band Brothers in band. Don't miss the interview with Oscar Rosende, the lead guitar player and singer of the band.
Guitar tech and luthier Francisco Rodriguez interview
The gear Francisco manages to get the Mark Knopfler sound
Here are the guitars used onstage by Brothers in Band. Francisco built several replicas for Oscar Rosende.
The core of the system to get the Mark Knopfler sound is the Soldano tube head with a TC Electronic delay and a Lexicon reverb.
Until the next interview keep on playing the guitar!
