Malibu Player (Burgundy)
(Guitars - Acoustic)

True creativity requires something new, something like the inspiring sound and feel of the Malibu Player. 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 gloss metallic solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides, as well as a matching painted 6-in-line headstock and crème binding giving it a shot of electrifying attitude. The bold style and balanced, articulate sound make the Malibu Player a natural partner on stage and in the studio.

The same no-compromise attitude that gives the Malibu Player its uniquely killer vibe extends to every aspect of its construction. It features optimized bracing for reduced mass and superior resonance, a Graph Tech® NuBone® nut and saddle for greater sustain and a Fishman® preamp system that makes it easy to plug in 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 walnut fingerboard and bridge further augment this instrument's vibrant tone. With superb playability, distinctive looks and unmistakable Fender vibe, the Malibu Player is an instrument for a new generation of fearless players.

UNIQUE FENDER BODY SHAPE

This guitar's unique body shape is a Fender exclusive, giving it a vintage-inspired look with a modern twist.

SOLID SPRUCE TOP

Spruce is the standard modern tone wood for fashioning the tops of acoustic guitars and other acoustic instruments - few woods can beat its strength, brightness and dynamic range, and it responds well to any acoustic playing style, from hard strumming to fast flatpicking to delicate fingerpicking.

FISHMAN PREAMP AND TUNER

A Fishman pickup/preamp system adds peerless amplified performance with a variety of onboard controls to your acoustic instrument without compromising its pure, rich and resonant tone. The onboard tuner is conveniently placed right where you can see it.

6-IN-LINE MATCHING PAINTED HEADSTOCK

The matching painted 6-in-line headstock on this guitar is immediately recognizable and exudes classic Fender vibe. It also provides considerable strength and resistance to "whiplash" that can severely damage most traditional acoustics.

SLIM-TAPER "C"-SHAPED MAHOGANY NECK

The supremely comfortable slim-taper "C"-shaped mahogany neck has outstanding fret-hand feel that's suitable for any playing style and enhances the overall volume and liveliness of the guitar.

WALNUT FINGERBOARD AND BRIDGE

With a pleasingly dark look, smooth feel and vibrant tone, walnut is an excellent tone wood for crafting quality acoustic instrument bridges and fingerboards.
