With its distinct design touches including 'Hellcat' fingerboard inlays, the Tim Armstrong Hellcat will help you stand out from the crowd and is the ideal instrument to take from the practice room to the stage.

Signature Features

Tim Armstrong is the Grammy Award-winning founder of the U.S. punk band Rancid and is also known for his producing skills, alongside creating his own indie record label. The Hellcat is Tim's signature guitar, based on his own '60s Fender acoustic guitar and featuring additional modern appointments to give it a distinct look that will stand out from the crowd. The Hellcat guitar features many unique design appointments such as the "Hellcat" and double-skull fingerboard inlays, 4-ply pickguard, classic white body binding, distinct headstock inlay design, and Tim's signature on the truss rod cover.

Mahogany Construction

The Tim Armstrong Hellcat has a solid mahogany top that is supported with scalloped X-bracing. This gives a warm sound, with the thinner bracing providing enhanced resonance and tonal nuance. The back and sides of the body are constructed from laminated mahogany for increased warmth and solid projection, while the neck is crafted from maple which adds brightness and resonance.

Smooth Playing Feel

The Tim Armstrong Hellcat has a satin finish on the body and neck for a tactile feel and enhanced resonance. The neck has a comfortable 'C' profile and is mounted with vintage-style frets for a smooth playing action. The Graph Tech Nubone saddle is compensated for accurate intonation and, along with the Nubone nut, provides stable and reliable tuning.

Amplified Performance

The Hellcat is loaded with a Fishman Tim Armstrong Hellcat Acoustic preamp. The preamp has tone controls to shape your sound and a handy on-board tuner for quick tuning adjustments during your live performance or practice session. The guitar has the potential to sound great both unplugged and amplified, thanks to its accurate preamp/pickup system in combination with a high-quality set of tonewoods and modern construction methods. This makes it the ideal instrument to take you from the practice room to the studio or the stage, bringing distinct looks that will stand out from the crowd.
