The Fender California Malibu Player acoustic-electric guitar features an exclusive small-body shape with a short scale that gives it a slightly slinkier feel, encouraging you to reach for new chords and melodies. It looks as stunning as it sounds, with a gloss metallic solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides, as well as a matching painted 6-in-line headstock and crème binding giving it a shot of electrifying attitude. The bold style and balanced, articulate sound make the Malibu Player a natural partner on stage and in the studio.

Fishman Preamp System Provides Natural Plugged-In Tone

The Malibu Player's Fishman preamp system makes it easy to plug in without sacrificing the guitar's natural acoustic sound. Treble, Bass and Volume controls let you dial in your tone and an easy-to-read digital tuner aids onstage tuning.

Slim-Taper Neck Profile Suits Any Playing Style

The Malibu Player's lightweight mahogany neck features a comfortable, easy-to-play, slim-taper C-shaped profile suitable for any playing style. Its walnut fingerboard and bridge further augment this instrument's vibrant tone.

Optimized Bracing and NuBone Nut/Saddle Provide Superior Resonance and Sustain

The Malibu Player features optimized bracing for reduced mass and superior resonance, as well as a Graph Tech NuBone nut and saddle for greater sustain.
