Fender Newporter Player Candy Apple Red Left Hand Overview by GAK
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 laurel fingerboard and bridge further augment this instrument’s vibrant tone.

Great guitar for the money, fantastic action, plays beautifully
A really nice well made guitar with easy to play neck especially for those with short fingers. Nice sound. Really like the built in tuner. Shame it's only made in the one colour and not the rest of the RH range.
Bought as a birthday present for my son who has had his heart set on one of these for a long time. He is not disappointed, beautiful looking guitar with a great sound. Highly recommended.
