Rumbling acoustic richness, immense versatility
And it sounds even better with age. It's time to experience the sonic benefits of a solid top, and it's truly blissful. With solid Sitka spruce top, the Malibu proudly boasts undeniable versatility, as well as crisp articulation with a strong, riveting response. So your individuality as a player always shines through.
The Fender Malibu also features laminated mahogany back and sides, adding warmth, resonance, and a familiar punch to your sound. Laminated tonewoods are perfect if you're constantly on-the-go with your instrument. They prevent it from warping as a result of different climate changes, yet still provide a rich, melodic sound. Plus, this desirable mixture of tonewoods delivers that sought-after, classic acoustic sound that's defined decades of music. This is an instrument that will never interrupt your creative flow...
Exclusive and unique - Malibu style
