Classic sound that gets better with age
Sounds better with age. Experience the sonic benefits of a solid top. The Newporter Player features a solid sitka spruce top, giving you a bright, clear, strong character. Sitka spruce also has a broad dynamic range. This means you can play with utter freedom - it can handle almost any genre.
The Fender Newporter also features laminated mahogany back and sides, adding warmth, resonance, and a familiar punch to your sound.
