Solid Sitka Spruce Top & Mahogany Body
The Fender Newporter Player features a solid sitka spruce top which offers a versatile sound with a broad dynamic range and a crisp, clear, articulate sound.

With sitka spruce's versatile nature, players are able to achieve numerous styles of play and genres with ease. Its stunning solid top is coupled with mahogany back and sides that produce rich, resonant and warm tonal characteristics. Furthermore, its mahogany back and sides also deliver a meaty mid-range, producing punchy, woody tones with emphasized treble and bass, perfect for a wide range of playing styles and genres.
