FENDER® ACOUSTICS RELEASES AVRIL LAVIGNE NEWPORTER™ GUITAR
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (November 5, 2013) — Fender Acoustics is pleased to release the Avril Lavigne Newporter guitar.
Fender’s Avril Lavigne Newporter acoustic is based on her signature Squier® Telecaster® guitar, with all the distinctive punk-pop charm you’d expect from the top-selling Canadian songstress. It’s a concert-size beauty with all black finish, binding and tuners, and featuring a specially designed "star" rosette, 12th-fret skull and crossbones inlay and Lavigne’s signature on the Telecaster headstock.
Other features include an all-laminate mahogany top, back and sides with quartersawn scalloped “X” bracing; black-bound mahogany neck with “C”-shaped profile and 19-fret rosewood fingerboard, Fender “Viking”-style rosewood bridge with white pins; three-ply black pickguard; and Fishman® preamp system with built-in tuner.
