Newporter Special

Fender Newporter Special Natural

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

Made 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 key features 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 enable 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 unique.

A Super Smooth Playing Experience!

Fender Newporter Special Natural

C-shape neck profileFender chose Solid Okoume wood for the Newporter Special’s top due to its warm response and dynamic nature. The Newporter Specials’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 pau ferro fingerboard, delivering an easy-to-play and super smooth playing experience. Fender added some luxurious maple 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 Special?

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


The integrated 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.


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


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


Featuring 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.
