The Newport harkens back directly to early Stromberg design. Aged finish. Mother of Pearl headstock inlays. Vintage waffleback tuners. Stromberg original brass tail piece. Add to that the proprietary Stromberg piezo electric bridge pickup and you get a bohemian sound and Stromberg legendary tonal projection. Picking up and strumming the Newport will make you feel like you are sitting in that jazz era big band.
