Sadly, I didn’t know of Dick Dale until ‘94. The opening credits intro music of the film Pulp Fiction changed that for me! :fire:

Gotta respect a guy that can jam like that on an upside down backward guitar.

I know right. He learned everything inverted when all he needed to do was get a lefty guitar.
I read that Fender only made like 5% left-handed vs standard right-handed back then. By the time Dick Dale could even afford one he was already used to playing inverted.
Hendrix at least strung his as a lefty.
