Disrupt the status quo with the Malibu Special, a small-body, short scale acoustic-electric with a comfortable feel that will encourage you to reach for new chords and melodies. Featuring solid mahogany top, back and sides, the bold style and balanced, articulate sound make the Malibu Special a natural partner on stage and in the studio. Suitable for any playing style, the mahogany neck features a comfortable, slim-taper "C"-shaped profile, inspired by Fender's electric legacy. It also includes a premium Fender- and Fishman®-designed preamp system voiced specifically for the Malibu's body shape, allowing you to reproduce the guitar's natural sound when plugged into an amplifier.

The Malibu Special's no-compromise attitude extends to its build quality, featuring quartersawn scalloped X bracing for superior resonance, an upgraded bone nut and saddle, and a tilt-back headstock for enhanced sustain. Sleek maple binding, matching maple rosette, and the 6-in-line headstock punch up the Malibu's quintessential Fender vibe. With superb playability and unique aesthetics, the Malibu Special resonates with those destined to stand out from the crowd.

Highlights

UNIQUE FENDER BODY SHAPE

This guitar's unique body shape is a Fender exclusive which was first introduced in 1965 and offers a vintage-inspired look with modern tonal characteristics.

TILT-BACK 6-IN-LINE HEADSTOCK

A tilt-back headstock increases the break angle over the nut, allowing for enhanced sustain. The Strat-style 6-in-line design imparts Fender’s rock-and-roll attitude into this acoustic-electric instrument.

SLIM-TAPER “C”-SHAPED MAHOGANY NECK

The supremely comfortable slim-taper "C"-shaped mahogany neck will feel familiar to electric players and is also suited to acoustic players looking for a slimmer neck.

ALL-SOLID CONSTRUCTION

Prized for increased resonance and sustain, the Malibu Special is built with solid mahogany top, back and sides to achieve a tone that's warm and balanced.

FENDER AND FISHMAN-DESIGNED PREAMP SYSTEM

Complete with tuner, frequency (bass, middle and treble) and phase controls, this system is specially voiced for each body shape in the California Series.

DELUXE GIG BAG

With comfortable padded backpack straps, durable outer material, multiple pockets and a rubber boot for drop protection, the included deluxe gig bag provides top-notch protection while traveling.
