Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat Natural Walnut Fretboard

Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat Natural Walnut Fretboard – Based on the favorite ’60s Fender acoustic guitar of Rancid’s Tim Armstrong, Fender’s Tim Armstrong Hellcat 6-string acoustic-electric is a true signature instrument with all the detailed visual appointments that make Tim’s original guitar iconic.

A great collaboration between great visionaries

Tim Armstrong is the songwriter behind the infamous punk band Rancid — and behind each of those songs stands Armstrong's songwriting partner: his trusty '60s Fender acoustic. Armstrong worked with Fender to design a modern version of his time-tested partner — giving it a strong, rich voice. It also features a few touches of flair to match up with Armstrong's signature style, like pearl acrylic Hellcat fret inlays as well as two skulls adorning its 12th fret, black painted headstock, and a 4-ply tortoiseshell pickguard.

All-mahogany body for superb acoustic tone

The Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat 6-string acoustic guitar features a solid mahogany top and mahogany back and sides, giving it a rich and warm voice that is further enriched by its concert-sized body style with Fender's advanced scalloped bracing. The instrument also features a maple neck, a walnut fingerboard, and vintage-style open-gear tuners.
