Fender Newporter Acoustic in Jacksonville, FL for $275

These Newporter's were part of the last series of USA made Fender Acoustic guitars in the late 1960's.  Fender is not well known for its acoustics but these are kinda cool and a little bit rare too.  The Newporter is a big OOO style Mahogany bodied acoustic with a bolt on metal neck plate (?).  The neck on these is just like an electric neck, sort of like a Duosonic or Mustang style.  They have the 6 on a side tuners.  Note that there was a later Korean series that included a Newporter (and LaBrea) as well but they were very different acoustics other than the 6-on-a-side tuners. These were originally USA made guitars.  I believe they were made somewhere in Southern California perhaps even at the old Fender acoustic plant in Anaheim.
