With superb playability and unique aesthetics, the Newporter Player is an instrument sure to spark creativity with each and every strum!

Amazing Features • Fender-exclusive Newporter body shape

• Fender-exclusive CD-1 Fishman pickup/preamp system
• Mahogany neck with slim-taper "C"-shaped profile; walnut fingerboard and bridge
• 6-in-line headstock

A Super Smooth Playing Experience!


C-shape neck profileFender chose Solid Sitka Spruce woods for the Newporter Player’s top due to its highly responsive and dynamic nature. The Newporter Player’s unique body shape offers unhindered access to the upper registers due to the single cutaway too, alongside the optimised bracing which helps to lessen the overall mass, all whilst enhancing resonance.

Attached to this stunning body, you’ll find a mahogany neck with a slim C-shape neck profile featuring a smooth satin finish adjoined to a walnut fingerboard, delivering an easy-to-play and super smooth playing experience. Fender added a luxurious crème binding which helps in the secure build quality, all whilst adding a touch of class and strong visual appeal to this gorgeous guitar!

Why Choose Fender's Newporter Player?


This guitar's unique body shape is a Fender exclusive which was first introduced in 1965 and offers a vintage-inspired look with modern tonal characteristics.


The soundboard provides the most important tonal element of an acoustic guitar. Spruce is the standard choice, as few woods can beat its strength, sound, and dynamic range. Solid spruce tops are known for opening up and sounding better over time.


A Fishman CD-1 pickup/preamp system includes a variety of onboard controls for amplifying your acoustic instrument without compromising its pure, rich, and resonant tone. It also features a convenient built-in tuner.


The Strat-style 6-in-line headstock imparts Fender’s rock-and-roll attitude into this acoustic-electric instrument.


The supremely comfortable slim-taper "C"-shaped mahogany neck will feel familiar to electric players and is also suited to acoustic players looking for a slimmer neck.


With its pleasingly dark look, smooth feel and vibrant tone, walnut is an excellent tonewood for crafting quality acoustic instrument bridges and fingerboards.
