Just saw this.  I'd have been all over that Newport, but then again, I don't even remember my eBay password...  it's been a really long time... and good riddance!

I'm feeling a little sick over missing that Newport 90. Sold for what a good condition Newport would get. Definitely would have bought it😩

Same boat here.  Been looking for an n90 and slipped right past me,  dang it.   That other korina special i thought just sold on reverb and was formerly owned by an HFCer.  I think?.....

Great sentence in the ad:

"If needed, buyer should get purchase approval from their spouse (or significant other) BEFORE buying."

That Korina special is very similar to my first Hamer, but mine had Tonepros wraptail and tuners (Kluson style).  I really fought with that hardware; if mine had grovers like this one I may have kept it.  I've searched for years for a Newport 90; would've been gutted missing this one if it weren't for shish 91, which vanquished that GAS, and did so in style. 😎

How to tell if the Special is Korina or a ‘hog with a pick guard?  

If it's an 06 shouldn't it have a Certificate stating this?

I know TO isn't unusual for Newports, but it's particularly cool on that New90.

What was the standard color for Newport 90’s?

Jazzburst. This is the first one I’ve seen that is a different color.  

I figured it was that or Tobacco sunburst from the pics I’ve seen.
