Fender Musical Instruments Corporation is the world's foremost manufacturer of guitars, basses, amplifiers and related equipment. With an illustrious history dating back to 1946, Fender has touched and transformed music worldwide and in nearly every genre: rock 'n' roll, country and western, jazz, rhythm and blues, and many others.
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.
The guitars in this series have an unexpected, electric-inspired style that stands out. A bold modern twist on traditional acoustic aesthetics, they're eye-catchingly appealing and uniquely Fender.
The California Series includes three body shapes – the Malibu small-body, the Newporter medium-size body, and the Redondo large-size body. Each body shape is available in the California Classic, California Special, and California Player models, giving players a great choice in materials, colors, pickups, and price points.
California Special and California Classic acoustic guitars are equipped with a specially voiced Fender- and Fishman®-designed PM preamp. California Player acoustic guitars feature a standard Fishman pickup/preamp system.
Supremely comfortable, California Series guitars' slim-taper "C"-shaped mahogany necks are inspired by our electric legacy, giving them the same outstanding feel that's great for any playing style.
