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.
