Don't get to see those in black very often. Very nice! Thanks for posting the pic.

My favorite guitar. This one has a maple top. I also have another Newport that is natural spruce.

Although I think I remember that someone said some of the Newport models had a maple center block...

Never played or heard of a Newport with a center block. That would be awsome. I am not really a big fan of a big hole under the bridge pickup, like on the Newport and super Pro. It tooke me ages to get a pickup that worked in the SuperPro, so that it didn't sound like a big amplified acoustic guitar when cranked through a JMP.

Most Newports have the chambering you see in the pic cmatthes posted earlier in the thread. The Newport 90 and triple-Filtertron Newports have a solid mahogany block running all the way down the middle. Maybe some other one-off Newports, too.
