The Fender Malibu Classic Electro Acoustic Guitar is a writer and performers dream. Complete with a choice of 2 exclusive finishes, crafted from select spruce and mahogany and with a bespoke tuned pickup system, the Newport Classic is an electro-acoustic to treasure.
Fender select tonewoods
As we've come to inspect from Fender, the finest tonewoods have been used for the construction of the Malibu Classic. A solid Sitka Spruce top has been used for crisp top-end projection and has been painted and finished in a gloss-poly protective coating. The top plays home to a beautiful Koa rosette which adds excellent character and contrast against the gloss finish.
Like the top, the Mahogany back and sides have been finished in gloss. The back and sides have been left as a natural dark whilst the binding offers a contrasting and clean look. Mahogany is often used for back and sides due to its rich, warm overtones and can help smaller bodied guitars sound fuller.
Fitted to the compact body of the Malibu is a mahogany neck that's shaped to an ultra-comfortable SlimTaper "C" shape. The neck has then been finished in satin so that you can glide up and down the neck without any residual build-up, even over lengthy performances. Finally, the neck is adorned with a stunning Pau Ferro fingerboard complete with 20 frets and classic dot position inlays for clear navigation.
Premium Fishman Pickup System
For when you want to amplify the Malibu Classic with minimal fuss the low-profile premium Fishman preamp/pickup system is immediately on hand. This specific pickup has been tuned so that it responds perfectly to the Malibu. Simply use a jack lead to connect to your desired acoustic amplifier or mixing desk and you will hear the natural tone of the Malibu with no sacrifice of sound whatsoever.
Finally, Fender have included a gig bag so that you can keep this incredible guitar safe from the elements and maintain its beauty.
