Based on Tim Armstrong’s beat-up old ’60s Fender acoustic”the one he uses to write all the songs for his legendary punk band, Rancid”the Tim Armstrong Hellcat Acoustic is ready to slam. Armstrong has given his acoustic some modern mojo with pearl acrylic “Hellcat” logos on the third, fifth, and seventh frets, with a pair of skulls adorning the twelfth fret. Other features include a solid mahogany top, scalloped bracing, and Fishman preamp.
The Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat perfectly summates the Rancid frontman’s tone and playing style with features like a solid mahogany top, laminated mahogany back and sides, and a comfortable C shape maple neck. Resonant and easy to play, the concert-style body is topped off with a custom headstock and Armstrong’s signature and ready for porch jams or live playing thanks to the onboard electronics. Available in various limited run finishes. Fender updated the fretboard in 2018 to a Laminated Hardwood Fretboard.
