Fender Newporter Special Mahogany

Explore your individual creativity with the bold looks and inspiring sound of the Newporter Special. Featuring solid mahogany top, mahogany back and sides, the mid-sized Newporter body shape provides a balanced voice that’s both articulate and powerful. Designed for performing, it also includes a premium Fender- and Fishman®-designed preamp system voiced specifically for the Newporter’s body shape, allowing you to reproduce the guitar’s natural sound when plugged into an amplifier. The mahogany neck features a comfortable, slim-taper "C"-shaped profile, inspired by Fender’s electric legacy.

The Newporter Special’s no-compromise attitude extends to its build quality, featuring quartersawn scalloped X bracing for superior resonance, an upgraded bone nut and saddle, and a tilt-back headstock for enhanced sustain. Sleek maple binding, matching maple rosette, and the 6-in-line headstock punch up the Newporter’s quintessential Fender vibe. With superb playability and unique aesthetics, the Newporter Special is an instrument sure to spark creativity with every strum.
