Fender Malibu Player Electro Acoustic Guitar
The Fender Malibu Player Electro Acoustic Guitar is a small bodied, short scale acoustic guitar that oozes Californian cool and vintage surfer style. With Fenders inspiring voice, this is an accesible guitar that sounds as bold as it looks.
Using a traditional Solid Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides give a crisp, detailed response overall with an excellent sense of balacne. Stying touches are completed with a 3-ply Gold pickguard, cream binding and an unmistakable matching 6 in line Fender headstock. Fender have even developed, updated and refined their acoustic bracing in order to reduced the mass of the instrument and improve resonance.
For this Malibu model Fender have used a Walnut fingerboard along with 20 frets and a stylish dot inlays to provide a great surface for exploring a new approach to chords and melodies. This all rounder is easy-to-play too thanks to a desirable slim-taper C-shaped profile, a profile that naturally lends itself to various playing styles and genres found in western music.
Built to be reliable at home, on the road or in the studio the Malibu comes equipped with robust modern hardware finished with that retro style in mind. Players will benefit from a Graphetch Nubone nut, sealed tuning machine heads and a modern Viking bridge thanks their ability to maintain excellent tuning stability and sustain.
Being an electro-acoustic plug in edition, this Malibu Player by Fender comes fitted with a Fishman Preamp System. This impressive feature allows players to plug in for live performance without ruining the natural tone of the guitar itself.
