Explore your individual creativity with the bold looks and inspiring sound of the Newporter Classic. The exclusive mid-sized Newporter body shape offers well-balanced volume and a sonorous voice with great articulation. The fully-painted solid Sitka spruce top and natural solid mahogany back and sides, as well as a matching painted 6-in-line headstock and koa binding and rosette grant it an elegant two-toned aesthetic that was designed for performing.
The Newporter Classics no-compromise attitude extends to its top-notch build quality, featuring optimized bracing for reduced mass and superior resonance and an upgraded bone nut and saddle for exceptional sustain. It also includes a premium Fender- and Fishman-designed preamp system voiced specifically for the Newporter's body shape, allowing you to plug in to an amplifier without sacrificing the guitar's natural sound. The lightweight mahogany neck features a comfortable, easy-to-play, slim-taper "C"-shaped profile suitable for any playing style, and its pau ferro fingerboard and bridge further augment this instrument's rich voice. With its superb playability, distinctive looks and unmistakable Fender vibe, the Newporter Classic is an instrument that proudly defies acoustic instrument tradition.
