Epiphone Newport, and Newport Deluxe
Other than the Olympic Special, all 1960s Epiphone solid body guitars and basses had the same body style (almost symetrical pre-1964, with a shortened lower horn thereafter), they are the Epiphone Crestwood Deluxe, Epiphone Crestwood Custom, Epiphone Wilshire, Epiphone Coronet and Epiphone Olympic guitars, and the Epiphone Newport and Epiphone Embassy Deluxe basses.
In the 1970s the Epiphone (now Japanese manufactured) launched a new bass dubbed Newport, however with a model number ET285. This was a double pickup instrument with a similar body shape. but a bolt-on neck and very different hardware.
