Solid Sitka Spruce & Solid Mahogany Construction

The Fender Malibu Special features a solid sitka spruce top that delivers a versatile sound, and is able to accommodate numerous playing styles greatly, from lighter fingerpicking styles to more aggressive strumming patterns. In addition, the Malibu's solid sitka spruce top contributes to the overall sound, adding clear, crisp and articulate tones with a broad dynamic range. Sitka spruce is quite elastic in nature, which resonates well whilst remaining strong, and provides a focused, clear sound of deep lows, warm midi-range, and bright sparkling highs. Its stunning solid top is coupled with solid mahogany back and sides which produce a resonant dark warmth. The Malibu's solid mahogany back and sides also deliver a meaty mid-range, producing punchy, woody tones with emphasized treble and bass, perfect for a wide range of playing styles and genres.

Mahogany Neck & Pau Ferro Fingerboard

Constructed from mahogany, the Fender Malibu's neck offers plenty of resonance and warmth, which is perfect for a wide range of playing styles. In addition, its lightweight neck has a slim taper and C-shaped-profile, preventing the likeliness of a cramping hand and offering easy playability. Furthermore, the neck is topped with a pau ferro fingerboard which has a smooth feel and offers similar sonic characteristics to rosewood, adding warmth to the overall sound. The fingerboard is also sprinkled with maple dot inlays for added elegance.

Fender Malibu Body

This stylish electro acoustic features Fender's Malibu body, offering a comfortable playing experience. The Malibu body has a compact size, and a slightly shorter scale length, which offers superb playability and comfort to those players of all sizes and abilities. The Malibu's shape and tone produced accommodates fingerstylists perfectly, whilst its versatile spruce top allows for more aggressive strumming patterns, offering versatility within a compact size. In addition, the Fender Malibu features optimized bracing for added resonance, as well as to reinforce the Malibu's structure, offering durability and enhanced sound.

Fender/Fishman Preamp
