The Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat, seen here with a stunning Limited Run Checkerboard finish, is a signature model acoustic-electric guitar designed by Fender in collaboration with Tim Armstrong, Grammy-winning founder of the influential punk band Rancid.

This guitar is based on Armstrong's personal concert-style acoustic and features a blend of classic and modern elements that make it suitable for various musical genres.

Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat Acoustic-Electric Guitar Key Features

  • Concert Body Style - The guitar features a concert body style, which is slightly smaller than a dreadnought, offering a comfortable playing experience and a focused tone.
  • Fishman CD Pickup System - Equipped with a Fishman CD pickup system, the guitar allows you to amplify your sound with ease. The system includes an active preamp, tuner, volume control, and tone controls for shaping your sound.
  • Solid Spruce Top - The use of a solid spruce top contributes to a rich and resonant sound with clear highs and balanced midrange. The "X" bracing pattern enhances the guitar's tonal projection.
  • Mahogany Back and Sides - The mahogany back and sides complement the spruce top by adding warmth and depth to the guitar's tonal palette.
  • Maple Neck with Satin Finish - The maple neck with a satin finish provides smooth playability, allowing your hand to move effortlessly along the neck.
  • Distinctive Inlays - The 20-fret walnut fingerboard features unique "Hellcat" and double-skull inlays that contribute to the guitar's signature visual style.
  • Compensated Bridge - The walnut bridge features a compensated Graph Tech Nubone saddle, which aids in achieving accurate intonation across the fretboard.
The Tim Armstrong Hellcat is designed to be a versatile instrument suitable for pop, rock, folk, and various other genres. Its combination of classic acoustic sound and modern electronics makes it an appealing choice for both stage and studio use. Whether you're strumming chords or playing intricate fingerstyle arrangements, the Tim Armstrong Hellcat offers a distinctive tone and aesthetic that reflects Tim Armstrong's musical legacy.
