Dick Dale is a phenomenon. His style is something different and unique. Since his first appearances in Balboa, California at the famed Rendezvous Ballroom, he has set and broken attendance records everywhere he's performed.
Dick Dale invented surf music in the 1950's and was given the title "King of the Surf Guitar" by his fellow surfers with whom he surfed with from sun-up to sun-down.

To withstand the rigors of his percussive playing style, Dick swears by Graph Tech's String Saver saddles:
"I don't have time for wussy string saddles! I need saddles that can take it! Not get cut up and heat up strings. I wouldn't think of playing "the Beast" without String Saver saddles, and you can take that to the bank!" - Dick Dale
