Fender Newporter Player 6-String Acoustic Guitar (Right-Hand, Natural)

Explore your creativity with the bold looks and inspiring sound of the Fender Newporter Player 6-String Acoustic Guitar. Featuring a solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and a 6-in-line headstock, the mid-sized Newporter body shape provides a balanced voice that’s both articulate and powerful.

Mahogany Neck

The mahogany neck features a comfortable, slim-taper C-shaped profile, inspired by Fender’s electric legacy. The same no-compromise attitude that gives the Newporter Player its uniquely killer vibe extends to every aspect of its construction. 

Optimized Bracing

The guitar features optimized bracing for superior resonance, a GraphTech NuBone nut and saddle, and a Fishman preamp system that allows you to reproduce the guitar’s natural sound when plugged into an amplifier. With superb playability and unique aesthetics, the Newporter Player is an instrument sure to spark creativity with every strum.

Unique Body Shape

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.

Solid Spruce Top

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

Fishman Preamp and Tuner

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.

6-In-Line Headstock

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

Walnut Fingerboard and Bridge

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