Two Words—Dick Dale. Yes, the man who helped create the sound of surf music that defined a generation is at it again with the introduction of his signature Malibu. He designed this beautiful acoustic-electric guitar with painful attention to detail including the dual matching pickguards, 3" body depth for a more comfortable playing and less feedback when plugged in, Fishman pickup system with onboard tuner, and of course the reverse headstock to help you surf those signature Dick Dale licks.

Built on a thin folk body design, the Fender Malibu SCE features a solid mahogany top, back, and sides, and scalloped X-bracing, offering well-balanced tone, with plenty of punchy projection. The maple neck, rosewood compensated bridge, and rosewood fretboard add clarity, and the vintage-style Fender tuners keep the 6-string in precise tuning from song to song. Featuring a surfin' red paint job on the top and back makes the Fender Dick Dale guitar a perfect instrument for sitting beach side by the campfire with your pals.

The Fender guitar also feature a Stratocaster reverse headstock shape with Dick Dale signature, dual-action truss rod, dual pickguards, traditional Fender bridge, factory-mounted forward strap button with internal block reinforcement, white pearloid block inlays, checkerboard rosette, soft "C" shaped neck, multiple body bindings, bone nut and saddle, and a gloss finish completing the package. Includes case.

A sweet surfin' red strummer gets the signature of a legendary showman.

Comments about Fender Dick Dale Signature Malibu SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

If you can there is a video on the web where Dick Dale talks about the theory behind this design. I am here to tell you he is right! The idea of keeping the whole sound bow the same type of wood so the resonance has the same molecular structure it what sold me.

Comments about Fender Dick Dale Signature Malibu SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I love this guitar. Its the best purchase I have made. It's perfect for playing live shows because its the size of a Gibson Les Paul, maybe a little bigger, but it still has a full acoustic sound with the comfort of an electric guitar. The Fishman preamp is phenominal and the tuner is right on. I don't even take a tuner to shows where I am playing this guitar. It has a very versitile EQ that can get any type of sound you want. Not to mention it gets looks with the reverse headstock, the dual pick guards, and the red finish that pays homage to the legendary Dick Dale. So if you want a unique guitar that plays great and is relatively easy on the pocket book, this is it. You won't be dissapointed.
