Newporter Special with Gig Bag, All Mahogany, Pau Ferro Fingerboard, Natural
Explore your individual creativity with the bold looks and inspiring sound of the Newporter Special. Featuring solid mahogany top, mahogany back and sides, the mid-sized Newporter body shape provides a balanced voice that’s both articulate and powerful. Designed for performing, it also includes a premium Fender- and Fishman-designed preamp system voiced specifically for the Newporter’s body shape, allowing you to reproduce the guitar’s natural sound when plugged into an amplifier. The mahogany neck features a comfortable, slim-taper "C"-shaped profile, inspired by Fender’s electric legacy.
The Newporter Special’s no-compromise attitude extends to its build quality, featuring quartersawn scalloped X bracing for superior resonance, an upgraded bone nut and saddle, and a tilt-back headstock for enhanced sustain. Sleek maple binding, matching maple rosette, and the 6-in-line headstock punch up the Newporter’s quintessential Fender vibe. With superb playability and unique aesthetics, the Newporter Special is an instrument sure to spark creativity with every strum.
