What Haworth Guitars say:
The Fender Newporter Player Acoustic Guitar is a quality solid-top mid-sized acoustic/electric guitar by Fender.
The solid spruce top paired with the mahogany back and sides gives the Fender Newporter Player Guitar a rich, full tone acoustically and the Fishman pickup system only adds to the fullness when the guitar is amplified.
At Haworth Guitars, we love the feel of the slim-C mahogany neck on the Fender Newporter Player Guitar as well as the practical and comfortable Newporter body-shape and classic-looking 6-in-line machine heads.
The Fender Newporter Player Acoustic Guitar is a must see in Fender's California Series.
Here's what Fender has to say:
Follow your musical vision and express yourself with the unique Newporter Player. 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, the fully-painted gloss metallic solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides, matching painted 6-in-line headstock and crème binding give this guitar a shot of electrifying style. Unconventional to the core, the Newporter Player is definitely something different and exciting.
The same no-compromise attitude that gives the Newporter Player its uniquely killer vibe extends to every aspect of its construction. It features optimized bracing for reduced mass and superior resonance, a Graph Tech® NuBone® nut and saddle for greater sustain and a Fishman® preamp system that makes it easy to plug in without sacrificing the guitar's natural sound. Its lightweight mahogany neck features a comfortable, easy-to-play, slim-taper "C"-shaped profile suitable for any playing style, and its walnut fingerboard and bridge further augment this instrument's vibrant tone. With its superb playability, distinctive looks and unmistakable Fender vibe, the Newporter Player is an instrument that proudly defies acoustic instrument tradition.
