Thanks for the look Steve. If I ever get an electric, it will be one of those, with the 1 3/4" nut of course. Or a strat  and cut the horns off

Congrats Steve.  Did you get yours with the narrow or wide nut width?  Mine is narrow and has white pu rings...

Love 'em both - but I like the black pup rings - they just look more RnR!

Hey Walkerman, did you see a lefty Malibu laying around the Larrivee shop?   :drool:

It came with white ... had them switched to black.  Had to match my Santa Monica.

Very nice!

I'm torn between the black and white. I like both for various reasons I guess.

I would take either one. ;)

Here's my Bakersfield from 2012 other than the PUPS whats the difference between Malibu and Bakersfield  :?

Does the fingerboard make it a Malibu  :?

Well, the Malibu doesn't have a standard Tele bridge - rather, it has a stoptail and tailpiece... along with different pickups, this change may affect tone.

I doubt there's any difference in the necks/fingerboards on these - Bakersfields came with either maple or rosewood boards...

Also the Malibu specifications indicate a 1 11/16" nut width and the Bakersfield spec is/was for a 1 3/4" nut...

You have a Santa Monica? And now a Bakersfield? I'm 50% jealous (I have a Bakersfield).  :angry:
I'd ........ to get a Santa Monica. BTW, don't run over your new Bakersfield like I hear someone did  :whistling:
