Tim Armstrong is well-known as the Grammy-winning creator of the famous American punk band Rancid, as well as a producer and independent label owner. However, as a songwriter, he has always drawn inspiration from his vintage Fender concert-style acoustic guitar. The Tim Armstrong Hellcat is a contemporary take on Armstrong’s iconic instrument, complete with high-quality onboard electronics. It boasts a solid mahogany top for a beautiful tone and a satin-finish maple neck for smooth playability, making it a fantastic instrument for pop, rock, folk, and more.
This is a great acoustic with a punk rock vibe to it. The appointments on this less costly variant are similar to those on Armstrong’s personal Hellcat, so fans of Rancid will know the style (although adapted to right-handed players).
