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

"Porter actually owns three different versions of this guitar, casually known to guitarists as the Jimmy Reed guitar."I have this Silvertone one, he explains, then also a Kay and an Orpheum. They are all the same, except my other two are blonde. They have necks like a baseball bat and this one has the pickguard with the coat of arms." Porter used this guitar on Taj Mahal's " Senor Blues."
