California Special models represent the evolution and refinement of modern Fender acoustics, mixing iconic Fender electric playability with all-solid wood construction and best-in-class electronics. A crossroads of past, present, and future, these instruments truly resonate differently.

Crafted with an X-braced solid okoume top and solid okoume back and sides, the approachable mid-size auditorium body of the Newporter Special produces a balanced voice that's impressively resonant, articulate and powerful, while offering superior comfort for hours of creativity. The nato neck is designed with an easy-to-play slim "C"-shaped profile, a 25.5" scale length, and a tilt-back 6-in-line headstock for a distinctive look born from Fender's electric guitar DNA. Other notable details include vintage-style tuning machines for smooth, accurate tuning, a maple rosette and body binding for an upscale look, and a bone nut and saddle for rich harmonic character. Designed for the performer, the Fishman® Flex Body preamp system blends an undersaddle piezo and internal body transducer to allow faithful and reliable reproduction of the guitar's natural sound when plugged into an amplifier, PA system or recording device.

Bold, eye-catching and unique, California Series instruments make no compromises balancing effortless playability, superior sound, and standout style for those who aspire to play something different.

Highlights

Unique Fender Body Shape

A refined and modernized evolution of the historical 1960s model, the Newporter is a proprietary Fender design whose mid-size shape and versatile voice is well-suited for many musical styles and players.

All-Solid Wood Construction

With a body crafted from all-solid woods, this instrument provides superior resonance, volume and dynamic range. Okoume is a premium tonewood revered for its warm, nuanced tonality, natural sonic balance, and earthy aesthetics.

Fishman Preamp System

With a sleek, streamlined look and a pure acoustic voice, the onboard Fishman® Flex Body electronic system features intuitive controls for volume, tone and a blend knob for combining the undersaddle piezo pickup and body transducer to dial-in the most faithful amplified reproduction of the guitar’s natural acoustic tone.

Tilt-Back 6-in-line Headstock

A tilt-back headstock design optimizes the break angle of the strings over the nut, creating singing sustain and rich resonance.

Pau Ferro Fingerboard and Bridge

Favored for its elegant grain pattern, smooth feel and balanced tonal character, Pau Ferro is a premium hardwood for acoustic guitar bridges and fingerboards.

Deluxe Gig Bag

With comfortable padded backpack straps, durable outer material, and multiple pockets, the included deluxe gig bag provides the perfect balance of ample storage, road-worthy protection, and portability.
