Originally created at a time when Fender was making waves with their line of solid body guitars, along came a little acoustic that had one foot in the acoustic world and the other in the electric, with its SlimTaper profile neck and small body.

Despite success with some big names in the '60s, Fender stopped producing Malibu acoustics in the early ‘70s but then brought them back to life in recent times. The Fender Malibu Player Electro Acoustic Guitar in Burgundy Satin marks over 50 years of the model that was first seen in 1965 and adds an electro-acoustic capability for a whole new generation of players.

Bold looks, bold voice

Electric players will feel right at home with the Fender Malibu Player and beginners will find it easier to get to grips with it, as the smaller body makes it more manageable for both. This body is constructed from a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides; a classic combination that provides a balanced, rich tone, with plenty of projection, despite its smaller size.

The guitar’s top incorporates a scalloped X bracing pattern, which provides strengthening to the instrument. In addition, its scalloped construction means it has less mass, so the top is still free to resonate; giving more of the wood’s natural nuances and further encouraging projection, and presenting a better, stronger overall tone.

612mm Scale Length

The Fender Malibu Player presents a smaller body, the scale length is reduced at 612mm too. This once again blurs the lines between acoustic and electric, so that you get the best of both stunning acoustic sound with a comfortable electric guitar feel.

Originally a bolt-on, the mahogany neck of the updated Fender Malibu Player is joined to the body with a dovetail joint. Being Fender, the neck is highly playable, with its Slim 'C' shape feeling instantly recognisable in the hand, whether you’re a long-term fan or new to the brand.

Fishman Pickup System with Tuner

Where the Fender Malibu Player really comes into its own, is when it’s plugged in, which is thanks at least in part, to the onboard Fishman pickup system. Not only does this give you an accurate interpretation of the guitar’s natural tone to put through an amplifier or P.A system, but it also offers a 3-band EQ (bass, middle and treble), so you can easily carve the tone.

Furthermore, an onboard tuner makes sure the only excuse you have for not sounding good is a lack of practice, which is unlikely with this model in your arsenal, as you won’t want to let go of it.
