Porter muses over the highlights of his vast collection used on records by everyone from B.B. King to Eric Clapton to the Smiths.

"I was working in Austin on Los Lonely Boys "Heaven" at the time," recalls Porter," and I'd always loved Collings guitars. I had some Brazilian rosewood I'd had for years, so I took it to Collings and asked if they'd make me an OM21 with rosewood back, sides, and fingerboard -- all of which they didn't normally do. He let the wood sit on his desk for a year to see if it might bend, then he built it for me. It's a lovely, lovely guitar."
