More about Malibu™ Pro Bolt-On

The Fender Acoustic Custom Shop Pro series Malibu Bolt-On model delivers folk-style sound and design, with an affectionate nod to its ’60s-era ancestor and several great modern updates. Its solid Sitka spruce top has scalloped and forward-shifted red spruce “X” bracing for fantastic tone, along with solid mahogany back and sides and a specially designed bolt-on maple neck.

Special features include a gloss nitro lacquer finish in beautiful 3-Color Sunburst, comfortable “C”-shaped neck profile and Stratocaster® headstock with dual “wing” string trees, elegant aged white neck and body binding with wood checkerboard rosette and purfling, 10”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets and mother-of-pearl block inlays, three-ply gold pickguard, bone nut, vintage-style Fender “Viking” rosewood bridge with compensated bone saddle and bridge pins, engraved Fender “shield” neck plate, vintage-style tuners and Fishman® Matrix™ Infinity pickup/preamp system for peerless amplified performance. Includes deluxe hard-shell case, deluxe Fender leather strap and certificate of authenticity.
