The man who helped create the sound of surf music that defined a generation is at it again with the Dick Dale signature Malibu™. Dale himself designed this beautiful instrument with painstaking attention to detail; features include dual matching pickguards, 3” body depth for a more comfortable playing and less feedback when plugged in, Fishman® pickup system with onboard tuner, and reverse headstock.
