The Fender Malibu CE Acoustic Electric Guitar blends retro style and modern design to produce a great value in a dreadnought acoustic electric! Order yours from Sam Ash Direct today for the guaranteed lowest price.

The Fender Malibu CE Acoustic Electric Guitar from the California Series will transport you back to the 1960s, when the boys in Fullerton were cranking out guitars that not only kept up with the times, but helped define an era The Malibu SCE harkens back to those times with its vintage styled body and Stratocaster style headstock.

The single cutaway body features a solid spruce top with scalloped X bracing, along with a mahogany back and sides. This traditional reliable tonewood combination will produce the crisp resonant tone associated with Fender acoustic guitars. A smaller, folk-style body features Fender’s “tight” cutaway design to maximize upper fret access. Fans of Fender’s legendary solidbody electric guitars will love the maple ‘C’ shaped neck with the unmistakable Stratocaster style headstock. A rosewood fingerboard features 20 vintage style frets and traditional style dot inlays.

The Malibu CE also features the easy to operate Fishman Isys III Tuner/Preamp system. Located on the guitar's upper left side, the Fishman's separate gain, bass, and treble controls allow you shape your tone in mid-performance. The Sonoran SCE also includes an onboard LED tuner with auto-mute for silent tuning onstage. Case not included.

Comments about Fender Malibu CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I saw Kaleo Wassman (from Pepper) playing this on stage, and i HAD to have it. Once i got it, i noticed that it is the perfect tool for any reggae guitarist. I play Sublime, Slightly Stoopid, Pepper, Rebelution, The Expendibles, The Dirty Heads, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, etc.... and this guitar compliments the reggae beat like no other.

Pull this guitar out, and with its "beach" look, and stratocaster-like head on it... people turn their heads and notice. If youre playing with other reggae guitarists, this cuts through the sound of their guitar very nice.

Whats not so great is that it isnt too loud, or overpowering. Not for a busker. And if you play alot of Zeppelin, doesnt sound to great on it. But once you plug it in.... EVERYTHING sounds perfect on it.

My favorite guitar.... and i own a Martin, a strat, an epiphone, an albeline 12 string, an ibanez acoustic, an ovation and even an old school applause. This one is still my favorite for my playing style. Make sure to get the Malibu case, since it wont fit in any other case.
