Product Description

California Special models represent the evolution and refinement of modern Fender acoustics, mixing iconic Fender electric playability with all-solid wood construction and best-in-class electronics. A crossroads of past, present, and future, these instruments truly resonate differently.

Crafted with an X-braced solid Okoume top and solid Okoume back and sides, the compact parlour-sized body of the Malibu Special produces a voice that’s impressively articulate, punchy, and delicate, while offering superior comfort for hours of creativity. The neck is designed with an easy-to-play slim “C”-shaped profile, a short 24" scale length, and a tilt-back 6-in-line headstock for a distinctive look born from Fender’s electric guitar DNA. Other notable details include vintage-style tuning machines for smooth, accurate tuning, a maple rosette and body binding for an upscale look, and a bone nut and saddle for rich harmonic character. Designed for the performer, the Fishman® Flex Body preamp system blends an under-saddle piezo and internal body transducer to allow faithful and reliable reproduction of the guitar’s natural sound when plugged into an amplifier, PA system or recording device.

Bold, eye-catching and unique, California Series instruments make no compromises balancing effortless playability, superior sound, and standout style for those who aspire to play something different.
