A striking and unique signature Fender Malibu model inspired by Alkaline Trio.

Chicago punks Alkaline Trio jumped in on the design of what must be one of Fender's most distinctive acoustic guitars ever-the Alkaline Trio Malibu. The instrument takes the classic '60s-era sun-and-fun Malibu folk-style acoustic and dresses it up with a graceful heart-shaped rosette designed by the band, as seen gracing the cover of 2011 acoustic album Damnesia.

Premium features include a richly resonant all-mahogany body with the aforementioned AT-designed heart-shaped rosette, scalloped X bracing, C-shape maple Stratocaster neck with a 20-fret rosewood fretboard, body and neck binding, rosewood bridge with synthetic bone compensated saddle, chrome hardware and gloss neck and body finish.

Fender Alkaline Trio Malibu Mahogany Acoustic Guitar Features:

  • Laminate mahogany top
    Laminate mahogany back and sides
    Scalloped X-bracing
    25.5" Scale maple Stratocaster neck
    Rosewood fingerboard
    20 frets
    Alkaline Trio-designed heart rosette
    Rosewood bridge with synthetic bone saddle

  • Great guitar!

    As reviewed by Andrew Blackburn on 11/16/2012

    This is a super cool guitar. I love the smaller size and I was amazed at the big sound that comes out of this thing. Everyone who saw it asked if they could play it and just loved it. Cool vintage tuners and touches all over it. At the price point just a sweet guitar.

  • Completely in love with this guitar

    As reviewed by Mariah Maggiacomo on 1/12/2014

    I am a huge Alkaline Trio fan so as soon as I saw this guitar I knew I had to have it. It is considerably smaller then most guitars, but as a small girl with shorter arms it feels like it was made for me. When I first played it I thought it sounded a bit twangy for my taste but once I replaced the strings it sounded much smoother. Out of my four guitars this one is my baby and the one I play the most.

  • Bought it, brought it back, bought it again!

    As reviewed by Gary on 10/3/2014

    I first bought this guitar on impulse. After playing it for a while I decided it was an impulse buy, I did not need it, and brought it back. After a month I got a request to perform at a party, and realized this was the perfect guitar for the occasion. Small, big sound, really unique looking, easy to transport (but it does not come with a case or gig bag) and actually a pretty good players guitar. So I bought another one. Before I bought the second one I found that many of the guitars advertised do not come with electronics. The first one I purchased came with factory electronics. I called Fender and they could not determine if there were two different models. No info whatsoever. So I shopped around and found some come with electronics and some don't. I found one with electronics locally and picked it up. Sounds full and is easy to dial in. Comes with bass, middle and treble controls. Not to mention a volume dial, and built in tuner. Action was bit high. Needed to shave down the bridge saddle just a little and adjust the neck. Very happy with this guitar.
