More about Limited Edition Newporter™ Bolt-On

The Fender Acoustic Custom Shop presents a breathtaking playing experience in the form of the Pro series Newporter Bolt-On model, with a gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish in exquisite Ice Blue Metallic. The beautifully crafted guitar is available in a limited edition of 75 instruments.

This special modern Newporter evokes its original 1960s Fender ancestor, with premium features including a diminutive triple-"0" body style, solid mahogany top with scalloped and forward-shifted red spruce “X” bracing, and solid maple back and sides. Other features include aged white body binding and a stylish dual-checkerboard rosette, bolt-on maple neck with “C”-shaped profile and Stratocaster® headstock, 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with 10” radius and aged white binding, bone nut, three-ply gold pickguard, ’70s-era “Viking”-style rosewood bridge with aged pins, nickel hardware, and Fishman® Matrix™ Infinity pickup/preamp system with volume and tone controls. Includes deluxe hard-shell case, Fender leather strap and certificate of authenticity.
