Fender Newporter Player Electro Acoustic, Champagne
Fender Newporter Player Champagne 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. With its superb playability, distinctive looks and unmistakable Fender vibe, the Newporter Player is an instrument that proudly defies acoustic instrument tradition.

Brilliant guitar. Bought for my husband’s birthday. He actually mentioned the Malibu but they didn’t have his choice of the Midnight Blue so I took a chance on the Newporter in Champagne which he loves. He is a professional guitarist so really picky having played with some greats in his time. He has mentioned that the action could have been a little lower....I’m ?? now but he was lead guitarist. Anyway I think that the California series from Fender are a great sound. Going to get him the Redondo next!
Love it! Great sound at a good price.
Very well built guitar for the price with excellent depth of tone particularly on bottom strings.
