OK, my Newport arrived and I can tell already this one is going to be a favorite.

I look for guitars that are comfortable to play, sound great, and that have an interesting design/aesthetics.

This one has it all!

...and I just noticed, I commented on the guitar I now own on page 11. :D

Crazy, right?

I mean, WHAT a sleeper! I initially dismissed them as just another semi hollow thing. I couldn't have been more wrong.

I've said before, Serial's is one of my favorite Newports.

I probably wouldn't send mine off as it is almost flawless. However, after seeing your Newport, I might have a project for Stike- a little swamp ash Partscaster in a natural finish that I think would look nice with a
transparent paint job.

Anyway, the Phat Cats have a nice "chimey" quality to them that I like (a bit of delay was a nice touch). Tonight I'll throw a little distortion at it to see what happens...

my newport is just... awesome. I have to keep it locked away or else I'd only play that guitar, and not any others. Light, great sound, very comfortable.

I'm willing to lay it down that the Newport is the Shizznits! I have NEVER owned a guitar then moved the guitar down the road, played another one and was more impressed the second time than I was the first. WOW.

Now look at that. Every single one of them impresses more than another. Where else will you find something like that these days?

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.

I do not care much for Fugsby's, but I do LOVE the finish on that Newport. Holy cow that's nice.

You better not forget who has dibs on yours. And don't forget, I know where you live.
