Fender Malibu Player Arctic Gold
Fender Malibu Player Overview by GAK
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 laurel 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.

I love it, could not be happier with this guitar.
Love this guitar. So beautiful but as my daughter picked it out I’m proud she has such good taste. Only slight issue would be it arrived with marks on protective plate under strings. As this will get marked with playing it’s not a major issue - would have preferred it to be perfect though as it’s for my daughters Christmas.
