The Fender Malibu Special features a solid sitka spruce top that delivers a versatile sound, and is able to accommodate numerous playing styles greatly, from lighter fingerpicking styles to more aggressive strumming patterns. In addition, the Malibu's solid sitka spruce top contributes to the overall sound, adding clear, crisp and articulate tones with a broad dynamic range. Sitka spruce is quite elastic in nature, which resonates well whilst remaining strong, and provides a focused, clear sound of deep lows, warm midi-range, and bright sparkling highs. Its stunning solid top is coupled with solid mahogany back and sides which produce a resonant dark warmth. The Malibu's solid mahogany back and sides also deliver a meaty mid-range, producing punchy, woody tones with emphasized treble and bass, perfect for a wide range of playing styles and genres.
Constructed from mahogany, the Fender Malibu's neck offers plenty of resonance and warmth, which is perfect for a wide range of playing styles.

Furthermore, the neck is topped with a pau ferro fingerboard which has a smooth feel and offers similar sonic characteristics to rosewood, adding warmth to the overall sound. The fingerboard is also sprinkled with maple dot inlays for added elegance.
