The new Westport Series from Metropolitan has the features of the 1996 Tanglewoods but with a new body and headstock design. Both the Custom and Custom Acoustic models have rosewood fingerboards with wide bindings and geometric abalone and mother-of-pearl "butterfly" inlays. The fixed bridge sits high creating a more hollow body feel with added brilliance. The Custom Acoustic Model has an LR Baggs transducer built into the bridge for acoustic tonality while the Custom Model does not. The Deluxe is a trimmed down model and somewhat less flashy in appearance. The chrome truss rod shield, elaborate mega-headstock emblem and Metropolitan logo make this instrument a visual statement worthy of the biggest showman.

MSRP's are: $2,795 for the Custom Acoustic; $2,495 for the Custom; and $1,695 for the Deluxe. Available colors are pearl yellow, pearl aqua blue, basic black, pearl mint green, pearl white and metallic gold. Metropolitan Guitars are at: 3526 East T.C. Jester Blvd., Houston, TX 77018.
