    Product Description

    The Malibu Player from Fender is designed to evoke thoughts of sea, sunshine and songs by the campfire. Classy vintage-inspired looks with distinctly American flavours will transport you to the west coast with comfortable playability, resonant tone and a surprisingly affordable price tag! Radical!

    Compact Construction 

    The small body (and shorter scale length to match) provides this guitar with a feel described by Fender as "slinkier". This encourages creativity, as you'll be forced to discover a whole range of new styles, melodies and chords. A gloss metallic solid spruce top has been paired with a mahogany back and sides. A lightweight mahogany neck has been incorporated too. This boasts a slip taper C-shaped profile, making it incredibly comfortable and easy to use - no matter the playing style. This all results in an incredibly articulate, balanced sound that makes the Malibu player equally perfect for the studio or stage.  

    Impressive Additions 

    Excellent attention to detail extends to every other component as well. Bracing has been enhanced, benefitting resonance, while leading to a smaller mass. An improved Graph Tech NuBone nut and saddle compliments this, with a noticeable amount of sustain now present. 

    Finally, a Fishman preamp system ensures you can plug in and play - maintaining a tone that stays true to the guitars natural voice.
