    I have played acoustic guitar for 20 years and my children are now interested in learning. I bought them a small Yamaha JR1 a few years ago and that was ok til they got serious. Well, now they are and the JR1 wasn't cutting it anymore. I play a Breedlove, so I am fairly particular about sound quality. This little Malibu is super... and sounds better than expected plugged in to my Acoustisonic amp. I find that I play it when they aren't, but it has definetly helped them with their practice.

    Overall, if you're looking for a great acoustic-electric guitar at a fair price, go with the Fender Malibu CE. Small, comfortable, and sounds great.
    Features - It has pretty much everything you could look for in an acoustic-electric guitar. Bass, mid, treble, and volume controls with a tuner.
    Quality - The quality of this guitar is fantastic! The tuners stay in tune very well, the sound is great (On the treble-y side, but I love it.) The strings that it comes strung with (Fender acoustic strings) are great quality. The tuner is fairly accurate as well. Frets are nice, and the neck is a nice comfortable thin shape.
    Value - For the price, you really cannot go wrong. Fantastic quality for such a low price. I think this guitar will last for a long time.

    malibu review

    By Larry Baker

    from Tennessee

    Comments about Fender Malibu CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I have owned this guitar for a year now and the only problem i have had is the on board tuner has never worked.Other than that the sound is awesome when amplified but a little thin unplugged, something to be expected from the smaller sized body. i would highly recommend this little dynamo to any player regardless of experience!!
    great look and finish....tuner is a problem
    great guitar for the price

    just right

    By Scott Coker

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Fender Malibu CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I live in small quarters, so this little guitar works just right for me. Sounds a little weak unplugged, but that is to be expected from its small cut away body, but plug it in, and it sounds huge, you'd never dream it was a small parlor sized instrument, if you didn't see it for yourself. Not your regular accoustic neck here, more like a box guitar version tele or strat. Seems a bit easier to play than your average accoustic, probably a good choice for a smaller person too. But that doesn't mean larger folks should shy away from it. I love mine and you probably will too.

    good price

    Comments about Fender Malibu CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Great guitar for the money, only problem is the strings at the top are to high from the fret board, but lowing the bridge will fix it......delivered on time, and in good shape....fun to play.

    Twelve month later review by Obsessedguitarplayer

    Comments about Fender Malibu CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    It has everything an electric guitar player needs to go acoustic! After 1 year, I have traveled 4 states with it, jammed with friends and played around a campfire on an ocean beach and it still holds perfect tune. The trebley sound seems to carry the sound very well in acoustical horrible settings. I can't keep my hands off of it. It has withstood a Montana winter as well as hot August days with no affect. It's cheap enough to be your beater, but crisp enough to record with acoustically or plugged in. The small parlor size body does ring out the treble, but for an electric guitar player, it seems just right to me. With that fender style head, you just don't have to worry so much about it falling over and the strat-like neck allows me to practice trills, pull-offs and step and a half bends. There has been one cover song that I could not do because I needed one more fret. If that is my only complaint, that seems okay to me. The on board tuner is so nice that I have spent much more time with alternative tunings than before. I've left it in open G for over a week with no ill effects. You would think that the honeymoon would be over by now, but it isn't! For electric headbangers out there... just buy it!

    Beginners delight.

    By Irene Ouellette

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Fender Malibu CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    As a female beginner, I wanted a light, small guitar with a thin fret bar. I did not want to spend a lot of money, since I am just starting out. This guitar is easy to tune, has a big sound and is easy to play. For the price, it is a gem. Thank you, Musician's Friend.

    From a Newbie

    By UABBlazer

    from Madison, AL

    Comments about Fender Malibu CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I got this guitar to finally try to learn to play. I had an old Harmony dread that had beaten me for years. I got the order in only 3 days with standard free shipping, kudos to MF for outstanding service!! When I saw the box the first thing on the front (besides the name) is "Made in China". Having had no luck with Chinese made tools this made me wary. Well, they may not be able to make tools but by gosh they can flat make a guitar. Setup was great right out of the box. The onboard tuner was dead on with my old tuner. The finish is flawless. And the sound, geez I almost sound like I know what I'm doing. Do yourself a favor, if you're looking for a great value in an acoustic/electric that's just fun to play and sounds bigger than it is, get this one.

    Electric guitarist's dream!

    Comments about Fender Malibu CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I bought this Fender Malibu CE in "natural" a few months ago and still can't put it down for my beloved electrics! It is the same scale as my 335, with the similar neck of my strat!!! As my first acoustic electric, it has been a delightful transition. I wanted a less boomy guitar for noodling and tried out 20 different parlor size Acoustic Electrics under $500.00, but this one has the best acoustic tone for a parlor size and fits me more like an electric. The pick-up is awesome too. These do have quality issues. Mine has some stain on the fingerboard missing and the pick up wire clip was loose, but the top was way better than others and intonation was better, so I went for the higher quality top and tone and am completely happy. If I had known how much I would like it, I would have gone for the more expensive SCE, just for the extra appearance stuff. Great vintage look too!!!!

    Fender Forever !

    By StringPlucker

    from Lancaster, PA

    Comments about Fender Malibu CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This is a sweet playing guitar. I can't be more pleased with it. I was taken in though that the preamp was different then the one pictured. I just called Fender and they said mine is an upgrade. The one pictured is a FTE-3TN with sliders. The one I got was the LSYS 111 Fishman with three small turning knobs. He said it greatly improved the sound. So i'm very happy with it. Looks good and sounds great! Way to go Fender!

    Extremely pleased

    By Colton Moorer

    from Alabama

    Comments about Fender Malibu CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I have never had an acoustic guitar before but I have a stratocaster(mex-made) and I absolutely LOVE this guitar. It came without a scuff and sounds beautiful unplugged and is suprisingly loud and clear plugged up. It sounds great any way you play it! As far as looks it matches my chrome red strat perfectly and it looks just as good if not better. Overall I could not have asked for a better guitar and especially considering it's dirt cheap price! If you need an acoustic guitar or any guitar for that matter this is a definate buy!
