What Haworth Guitars say:
The Fender Newporter Player LH Acoustic Guitar is a lovely mid-sized acoustic guitar by Fender.
At Haworth Guitars, we love the fact that the Fender Newporter Player LH has a solid spruce top which is important to the acoustic tone, giving the guitar a big bright sound acoustically with the mahogany back and sides.
We also love the slim taper C neck on this Fender Newporter Guitar which makes it comfortable to play when sitting or standing.
The fishman preamp system sounds amazing on the Fender Newporter Player Guitar and the metallic finish and 6-in-line headstock give it that classic Fender look and feel.
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.
