Disrupt the status quo with the Malibu Classic, a small-body, short scale acoustic-electric with a comfortable feel that will encourage you to reach for new chords and melodies. Featuring a solid spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides, the bold style and balanced, articulate sound make the Malibu Classic a natural partner on stage and in the studio. Suitable for any playing style, the mahogany neck features a comfortable, slim-taper “C”-shaped profile, inspired by Fender’s electric legacy. It also includes a premium Fender- and Fishman®-designed preamp system voiced specifically for the Malibu’s body shape, allowing you to reproduce the guitar’s natural sound when plugged into an amplifier.
The Malibu Classic’s no-compromise attitude extends to its build quality, featuring quarter sawn scalloped X bracing for superior resonance, an upgraded bone nut and saddle, and a tilt-back headstock for enhanced sustain. Sleek maple binding, matching maple rosette, and a 6-in-line headstock punch up the Malibu’s quintessential Fender vibe. With superb playability and unique aesthetics, the Malibu Classic resonates with those destined to stand out from the crowd.
