Crafting the Fender Newporter Classic

To ensure the best possible tone, the Newporter Classic has been crafted using all solid wood.

With its exclusive mid-sized Newporter body shape, the Fender Newporter guitar gives you well-balanced volume, resonant tone and crisp articulation.

Solid Sitka Spruce has been used for the Newporter’s top as is it is extremely responsive and dynamic, making it suitable for all playing styles while the solid Mahogany back and sides work together with the top for an all around well-balanced and organic tone.

Another great feature of the Newporter Classic is its cutaway design which allows for easy reach of the upper frets – essential for guitar solos and other adventurous styles of playing.

Attached to the body is an easy-to-play, slim-taper C-shape profile neck which has a luxurious satin finish and a Pau Ferro fretboard, providing you with a beautifully smooth and slinky playing feel.

Koa binding maintains a secure build while adding an extra layer of visual appeal along with the matching Koa rosette. The body also features optimised bracing which reduces mass and enhances resonance.

Specially Voiced Electronics

Allowing you to plug in and play live and loud, the Newporter Classic features a premium Fender and Fishman designed preamp system that has been specially voiced for the Newporter body shape and doesn’t compromise the guitar’s natural sound.

Allowing you to easily dial-in your perfect tone, volume, treble and bass can all be adjusted individually, while a built-in tuner allows you to tune your strings without having to take along a separate tuner.

At the matching painted headstock, sealed nickel tuning machines allow for quick and easy tuning of your strings.

Down on the body, you’ll find a modern Viking style Pau Ferro bridge with a compensated saddle, providing excellent transfer of vibration from your strings to the resonating solid Spruce top while ensuring perfect intonation.

The Spirit of Newporter

Even better, the Newporter Classic comes to you in a Deluxe Gig Bag – an awesome way to store your guitar and protect it while taking it along to rehearsals and gigs.
