Superb Fender Newporter acoustic guitar, 1968, with hard case & original guarantee tag The Fender Newporter is an unusual guitar. It has a lovely Mahogany acoustic body with a neck and headstock straight off the 1968 Stratocaster production line. The original Newporters were made between ’65 and ’71. This isn’t part of the later model production run. This one retains all of the original features, including the original gold-topped scratch plate. The Mahogany body is light and resonant.
