The Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat guitar features a solid mahogany top that offers durability and great resonance. The mahogany top delivers rich characterised warmth, a focused, woody, punchy mid-range, and a thick well-defined tone with plenty of depth and complexity that will accommodate most playing styles. Mahogany also contains its rich warmth, but is well-balanced with a bite of its own. The mahogany top is accompanied by laminated mahogany back and sides that delivers warmth, but not as rich and as resonant as its solid top. However the laminated back and sides offer extreme durability, and is far less susceptible to cracking. Mahogany is used a lot in the acoustic world because it is relatively economical, attractive, easy to work with, and resonant.

The neck features a C-shaped profile that provides a comfortable playing experience. The neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that delivers a warm, bright, sparkly tone that really shines through when using finger techniques. The rosewood fingerboard also provides a smooth and energetic playing experience.
