Hello, i bought a new beautifull olive green satin Newporter California series in the Netherlands, where i live. Serial - IWA1903847. I know its made in indonesia. But it says also; built by Fender and designed in soutern California and not build by lets say squier. I thought the fender acoustics came from The Cort factory in indonesia and that Fender has no factory of its own there.I can’t find any you tube video of the making of my Newporter. Anybody can help me please with more info. I am just confused by; build by Fender. Have a great day and thanks.

FMIC subcontracts the instrument making to many companies/factories, and they don't reveal the actual makers beyond the info that can be read from the serial numbers.

It's not unusual that a factory builds both Fenders and Squiers - that has happened in the US and Mexico factories, too.

And as the holder of the trade marks, FMIC decides which logo comes in an instrument. :wink:
