More about Newporter™ Mini with Gig Bag

Fender first introduced the Newporter model back in 1965 as one of its original sun-and-fun acoustic guitars. Now it’s back in the form of the Newporter Mini - a full-sounding mini-dreadnought with a shorter scale (22.6") that makes it great for beginners and anyone looking for the perfect pick-up-and-go acoustic.

Features include a spruce top with scalloped X bracing and classic checkerboard rosette; mahogany back and sides; natural satin finish; mahogany neck with 20-fret rosewood fingerboard, dual-action truss rod, Stratocaster® headstock and satin finish; rosewood bridge and vintage-style tuners with aged white buttons.
