To commemorate the 45th anniversary of the release of genre-defining 1962 album Surfer’s Choice by the “King of Surf Guitar” himself, Dick Dale, Fender Acoustics presents the Dick Dale Limited Edition Malibu™ CE. Features include 3”-deep body bearing Surfer’s Choice album artwork and photos of the man himself in action, laminated spruce top, mahogany back and sides, reverse headstock, onboard preamp with built-in tuner, and gloss finish. Also new is the Dick Dale Signature Malibu™ SCE, gloss- finished in beautiful “Surfin’ Red” and boasting a solid spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides, reverse headstock, dual matching pickguards, 3” body depth and Fishman® pickup system with built-in tuner.
Dale’s son, Jimmy—no slouch on six strings in his own right—also has a new signature acoustic model, the Jimmy Dale Signature Kingman™ SCE. The younger Dale helped design his own take on the Kingman model, with features including a 3”-deep all solid-mahogany body, dual pickguards, Fishman® preamp with built-in tuner, and natural satin finish.
Fender Acoustics pays homage to the groovy exotic-wood guitars of the ’60s with the new Sonoran™ ’67 Limited. The laminated milkwood back and sides impart a classic exotic look; the scalloped X bracing and solid rosewood bridge plate deliver bright sound and good projection. Modern touches include a soft “C”-shaped neck and onboard preamp with built-in tuner.
