Well-known as the Grammy-winning founder of influential U.S. punk band Rancid, Tim Armstrong has also carved paths as a well-respected producer and indie label owner. A longtime fixture on the punk scene, he has always turned to his old Fender concert-style acoustic for songwriting inspiration. The Tim Armstrong Anniversary Hellcat celebrates 10 years in partnership with Fender, and is based on Armstrong's own instrument from the 1960s, which makes for a great guitar for pop, rock, folk and more. It features upgraded modern appointments such as a solid spruce top, high-quality onboard electronics, gold hardware, and Tim’s signature Hellcat inlay.

SOLID SPRUCE TOP
SOLID SPRUCE TOP

The soundboard provides the most important tonal element of an acoustic guitar. Spruce is the standard choice, as few woods can beat its strength, sound, and dynamic range. Solid spruce tops are known for opening up and sounding better over time.

SCALLOPED BRACING
SCALLOPED BRACING

Scalloped bracing is thinner than more conventional bracing. That means that the bracing pattern inside the guitar uses less wood, which means that soundboard mass is reduced. This lets the top resonate more freely, resulting in better tone with more nuance and greater projection.

FISHMAN® PREAMP WITH BUILT-IN TUNER
FISHMAN® PREAMP WITH BUILT-IN TUNER

A Fishman® pickup/preamp system gives your acoustic instrument peerless amplified performance, with a variety of onboard controls and no compromise whatsoever on pure, rich and resonant acoustic tone. The built-in tuner is conveniently placed right where you can see it, helping to keep your intonation right on the money.
