The Fender Acoustics Custom Shop introduces a very special 15-instrument limited edition run of the exquisitely appointed Newporter Custom Design. Crafted by top luthiers in the Fender Acoustics Custom Shop in New Hartford, Conn., it presents a truly distinctive high-end take on one of Fender’s original mid-1960s sun-and-fun acoustic models.
The Newporter Custom Design has a small triple-“O” body shape with a striking solid Carpathian spruce top, forward-shifted scalloped “X” bracing and solid figured walnut matched back and sides. Its two-piece neck in figured curly maple has a soft “V” profile with comfortably rolled edges, with a 10”-radius ebony fretboard, bone nut and Stratocaster® headstock shape. Other premium features include special body binding and custom blue rosette, classic Fender “Viking”-style ebony bridge with bone saddle and pins, gold hardware, Waverly® tuners and Fishman® Matrix Infinity electronics for peerless amplified performance.
