Play Something Different
True creativity requires something new, something like the inspiring sound and feel of the Malibu Special. 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 fully-painted solid Sitka spruce top with painted solid mahogany sides and back, along with a matching painted 6-in-line headstock and maple binding giving it a shot of electrifying attitude. The bold style and balanced, articulate sound make the Malibu Special a natural partner on stage and in the studio.

California Series Special Guitars
Unique Fender Body Shape
This guitar's unique body shape is a Fender exclusive, giving it a vintage-inspired look with a modern twist.
With all-solid back, sides and top, California Series Special acoustics are built to project with the player's personality in mind. Solid mahogany back and sides coalesce with a solid Sitka spruce top for tone that's lifelike, powerful and balanced.
Fender- and Fishman-Designed Preamp System
Complete with tuner, frequency (bass, middle and treble) and phase controls, this collaboration of preamp design is specially voiced for each California Series body shape.
6-in-line Matching Painted Headstock
The matching painted 6-in-line headstock on this guitar is immediately recognizable and exudes classic Fender vibe. It also provides considerable strength and resistance to “whiplash” that can severely damage most traditional acoustics.
Slim-Taper "C"-Shaped Mahogany Neck
The supremely comfortable slim-taper "C"-shaped mahogany neck has outstanding fret-hand feel that's suitable for any playing style and enhances the overall volume and liveliness of the guitar.
Deluxe Gig Bag
With comfortable padded backpack straps, tough and durable outer material, multiple pockets and a rubber boot for drop protection, the included deluxe gig bag provides top-notch protection while traveling.
