Fender Malibu Special Mahogany

Disrupt the status quo with the Malibu Special, a small-body, short scale acoustic-electric with a comfortable feel that will encourage you to reach for new chords and melodies. Featuring solid mahogany top, back and sides, the bold style and balanced, articulate sound make the Malibu Special 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 Special’s no-compromise attitude extends to its build quality, featuring quartersawn 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 the 6-in-line headstock punch up the Malibu’s quintessential Fender vibe. With superb playability and unique aesthetics, the Malibu Special resonates with those destined to stand out from the crowd.
