GALLERY: John Porter's Guitar Collection
February 19, 2013
Porter muses over the highlights of his vast collection used on records by everyone from B.B. King to Eric Clapton to the Smiths.
"This hard-to-find model was Gibson's first-ever cutaway flattop, and the first flattop with a pickup. Porter found the guitar held together by house paint and the folks at Voltage Guitars in Hollywood refurbished it in gold. It's a great songwriting guitar," says Porter, "and it's been on every record I've made in the last 15 years."
