    This song is full of quack...the fills and especially the lead break.

    Sultans like has already been mentioned and a lot of Clapton's stuff are probably the best examples.

    The original album version was probably recorded in position 2 with a Dimarzio FS-1 in the middle and the stock 61 pickup in the bridge. The mismatched pickup combination sounds great, but it’s a little less quacky.

    Later, he moved the FS-1 to the neck. In this video, he plays most of the song in position 2 with the stock bridge and middle pickups, then switches to the FS-1 neck for the solos at 3:37 and 5:07. I think this is quackier than the album version, and you can clearly hear the difference when he switches to the FS-1 alone.



    Of course, Knopfler plays fingerstyle, and many of his notes are damped.
