Fender California Series
Fender California Series
Inspired by the California lifestyle—colorful, energetic and independent—we fused our electric guitar DNA with exceptional acoustic playability and tone to craft the California Series. Instruments as individual as the artists who play them, California Series guitars have unexpected, electric-inspired style that stands out. A bold, modern twist on traditional acoustic aesthetics, they’re eye-catchingly appealing and uniquely Fender.
Fender Malibu Player Highlights
Solid Spruce Top
The soundboard provides the most important tonal element of an acoustic guitar. Spruce is the standard choice, as few woods can beat its strength, sound, and dynamic range. Solid spruce tops are known for opening up and sounding better over time.
Fishman Preamp and Tuner
A Fishman pickup/preamp system includes a variety of onboard controls for amplifying your acoustic instrument without compromising its pure, rich, and resonant tone. It also features a convenient built-in tuner.
Electric Guitar-Inspired Features
The matching painted Strat-style 6-in-line headstock imparts Fender’s rock-and-roll attitude into this acoustic-electric instrument.
The supremely comfortable slim-taper "C"-shaped mahogany neck will feel familiar to electric players and is also suited to acoustic players looking for a slimmer neck.

Even when the truss rod is optimally adjusted, there is serious fret buzz in many random places.
It’s a shame they didn’t pay attention to this very important part, because otherwise I like these guitars.
The electric guitar feel, playability and extra tall frets are rare, if not impossible to find on other acoustic guitars.
I am not seeing the option to 'add a photo'.

For my side of it, it is a beautiful guitar and well worth the money spent for it. I would highly recommend this guitar
