I got this one from a Gear Pager. I don't know who did the mods (tailpiece/WCR Darkbursts), but it cooks!!!

I believe our very own BadgerDave did that one!

Here's one I had for a while. Nice guitar, but I couldn't get use to the pickup selector location and my Studio Custom was bit better-suited to my needs. Thank you.

Which burst is this? Is it Jazz or Tabacco as it was done around Y2K, or is it a differnt colour altogether? Bursted on the back too?

Thanks to the folks at Workshoplive.com, this one came home with me in October 2006, never ever to roam...:

Love this thing!!! The guys in New Hartford must've as well -- They used it in the 2007 catalog as the Newport model shot...

I have two, one spruce top in natural and a maple top in black. Here's the black one.......one of my most used guitars.

It's a '99, I was told Tobacco burst over spruce and the back is bursted too.

Just a very good sounding basic Newport.

There are some great Newports in this thread so far - Pirate's always makes me weak at the knees! :P Anybody got a Classictron in the fanclub family, or are they all in unknown hands?

That head is the Club 40. The cab has 2 Heritage G12M's. That guitar and amp combination is outstanding.

Awesome!

I guess as the internal pre-production name for the Newport was Swingabilly, orange sparkle was indeed the natural choice. :P

Black over Spruce? I thought black was reserved for maple tops- must be rare! Love the both of em.
