The Fender Malibu Player is a versatile acoustic-electric guitar that offers a fresh take on traditional design. With its small body, short scale and comfortable feel, this guitar is perfect for players looking to explore new chords and melodies.
The Malibu Player features a solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and a 6-in-line headstock that gives it a bold and balanced sound. The mahogany neck has a slim-taper “C”-shaped profile that is inspired by Fender’s electric legacy and provides a comfortable playing experience for any style.
The guitar’s construction features optimized bracing for superior resonance, a GraphTech® NuBone® nut and saddle, and a Fishman® preamp system that captures the natural sound of the guitar when plugged into an amplifier.
The Fender-exclusive Malibu body shape was first introduced in 1965 and offers a vintage-inspired look with modern tonal characteristics. The solid spruce top is a standard choice for acoustic guitar soundboards, known for its strength, sound and dynamic range. The Fishman CD-1 pickup/preamp system includes a variety of onboard controls and a built-in tuner.
The Strat-style 6-in-line headstock imparts Fender’s rock-and-roll attitude into this acoustic-electric instrument. The slim-taper “C”-shaped mahogany neck offers a comfortable playing experience for electric and acoustic players alike. The walnut fingerboard and bridge offer a dark look, smooth feel and vibrant tone.
With its unique design, balanced sound and convenient features, the Fender Malibu Player is an excellent choice for players who want to stand out from the crowd.
