An Acoustic You’ll Love

You'll immediately notice the fun, one-of-a-kind look of the Alkaline Trio Malibu™ acoustic guitar. The Chicago punk band has create one of the most distinctive Fender acoustic models ever made, with its immediately recognizable heart-shaped rosette and cool looking all-mahogany construction. The Fender Malibu guitar style dates to the late '60s and offers a comfortable folk-sized body with a sweet, articulate tone great for beach parties, unplugged gigs and much more. And with its maple Stratocaster® neck with a comfortable "C" profile, the Alkaline Trio Malibu also feels great to electric guitarists.

Features

  • Folk-style acoustic created by Alkaline Trio
  • Natural gloss finish mahogany top with scalloped “X” bracing, mahogany back and sides
  • Maple Stratocaster® neck with “C” profile
  • 20-fret walnut fingerboard with Graph Tech® NuBone™ nut
  • Walnut bridge with compensated Graph Tech® Nubone™ saddle
  • Alkaline Trio-designed heart rosette, multiple body binding
Scalloped Bracing
Scalloped Bracing

Scalloped bracing is thinner than more conventional bracing. That means that the bracing pattern inside the guitar uses less wood, which means that soundboard mass is reduced. This lets the top resonate more freely, resulting in better tone with more nuance and greater projection.

Graph Tech Nut and Bridge Saddle
Graph Tech Nut and Bridge Saddle

Graph Tech string nuts and bridge saddles enhance the sustain, clarity and tonal consistency of an acoustic instrument. Neither too soft nor too brittle, they eliminate troublesome string binding, and they deliver performance, workability and appearance that easily outdo other plastics and come remarkably close to real bone.

Maple Strat® neck with "C" profile
Maple Strat® neck with "C" profile

A Fender specialty. A maple Stratocaster neck with a "C" profile gives you the timeless and remarkably comfortable fretting-hand feel of one of the world’s greatest electric instruments on your acoustic guitar. For great acoustic sound and performance with great electric-guitar feel, there’s nothing better.
