    Knopfler - Fender? Gibson? Lots of both, especially with later Dire Straits and his solo stuff.

    Different tools for different jobs.
    You know, that's pretty lame. Yeah so guitarists sometimes play other models on certain songs or even change altogether. Doesn't change what they are most associated with. I've seen Gilmour play a sax too...doesn't mean he's changed to sax. To dispute Gilmour, especially, as being A Strat guy is ludicrous.

    I wasn't 'disputing' anything -- just pointing out that most guitarists know that there are differences in the various instruments and choose to utilize each of them depending on the sound they're after. And that means that 'Fender guys' use Gibsons, and 'Gibson guys' use Fenders.

    I certainly wasn't saying Gilmour isn't known as a Strat guy -- just saying he doesn't play Strats exclusively. Nor do the others. So not even they pick just one or the other. Which is what the poll was asking us to do -- associate the icons with just one brand.

    For those that may be curious, check out the collection of guitars that Mark Knopfler has out on tour with him right now. There's a photo in this post at Guy Fletcher's site:

    http://www.guyfletcher.co.uk/index.p...13_-_Frankfurt

    I would imagine he's got a few more at home...

    Do basses count?

    I lean Fender from a players standpoint, and for some reason loath every Gibson bass I lay my hands on.

    from a Guitarists I have played with standpoint? I've heard both sound brilliant, though will never understand why the tuners on a 3000k+ Les Paul custom can't hold tune for more than a song and a half.

    Below is my Geddy Lee Jazz Bass (black) and a kind I Frankenjazz I pieced together myself.

    Nah, I'm a Markbass guy predominantly. Had horrible luck playing Ampegs, seems the big ampegs just don't agree with me for some reason (though there smaller portaflex amps sounded pretty nice....though many reliablility complaints)

    Markbass = hard on the wallet, but delightfully Easy on my back.
