Description

Follow your musical vision and express yourself with the unique Newporter Special. The exclusive medium-sized Newporter shape gives it a balanced voice that’s both articulate and powerful, perfect for backing up any singer. Designed for performing, fully-painted solid Sitka spruce top and painted solid mahogany sides and back, as well as a matching painted 6-in-line headstock and maple binding and rosette give this guitar a shot of electrifying style. Unconventional to the core, the Newporter Special is definitely something different and exciting.

The Newporter Special‘s 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 tone. With its superb playability, distinctive looks and unmistakable Fender vibe, the Newporter Special is an instrument that proudly defies acoustic instrument tradition.
