A Punk Rock Acoustic

Fender pays tribute to the Chicago-based punk group Alkaline Trio with the Fender Alkaline Trio Malibu acoustic guitar. This '60s inspired folk-style acoustic features laminated mahogany back, sides, and top. This acoustic features a C-shaped maple Stratocaster neck is topped with a rosewood fretboard. The custom heart-shaped soundhole design comes from the cover design of Alkaline Trio's acoustic album. The classic Fender headstock gives this acoustic guitar a contemporary look, and its comfy C-shaped neck makes playing a joy. You get that classic California vibe when you play a Fender Alkaline Trio Malibu!

Could Not Be Happier

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this guitar. It's light, portable, easier to play than any other acoustic I've ever touched, sounds incredible, and is one of the most beautiful instruments I've ever owned. Notes and chords that I've been struggling to play for months on my old guitars are nothing to play on this one. It is worth far more than $279, and I could not be happier. I love absolutely everything about this instrument.

Great Little Guitar

I love how this guitar is a perfect mix of portability, playability, sound and design. The neck feels and plays similar to a Stratocaster rather than a typical acoustic. The size makes it perfect to travel with or have a younger person learn on. This guitar sounds great for the size and price. Finally, the design is impressive and I get compliments on it often. I highly recommend this guitar.
