The familiar tone of a Fender dreadnought with the smooth look and feel of a Fender electric neck.

True creativity requires something new, something like the inspiring sound and feel of the Malibu Special acoustic-electric guitar. The exclusive small-body shape's short scale gives it a slightly "slinkier" feel, encouraging you to reach for new chords and melodies. It looks as stunning as it sounds, with a fully-painted solid Sitka spruce top with painted solid mahogany sides and back, along with a matching painted matte black 6-in-line headstock and maple binding giving it a shot of electrifying attitude. The bold style and balanced, articulate sound make the Malibu Special a natural partner on stage and in the studio.The Malibu Special exudes a killer vibe and unexpected style that is sure to turn heads wherever you go. Its no-compromise attitude even extends to its top-notch build quality, which features optimized bracing for reduced mass and superior resonance and an upgraded bone nut and saddle for exceptional sustain. It also comes equipped with a premium Fender- and Fishman-designed preamp system voiced specifically for the Malibu’s body shape, allowing you to plug in to an amplifier without sacrificing the guitar’s natural sound. The lightweight mahogany neck features a comfortable, easy-to-play, slim-taper "C"-shaped profile suitable for any playing style, and its pau ferro fingerboard and bridge further augment this instrument’s rich tone. With its superb playability, distinctive looks and unmistakably Fender vibe, the Malibu Special is an instrument as individual as you are. Order this cool looking Fender today.
