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

"The third in Porter's rosewood trio features a special tailpiece he calls the "buzzstop". Porter explains, "The original Jazzmaster bridge was not right; improper tension of the strings over the bridge. On this model the buzzstop bar holds the strings down and makes it really great." Porter's custom Jazzmaster uses Japanese Fender pickups, which he prefers over the Americans."
