Classic '60s Vibe - Rancid Style!

Fender's Tim Armstrong Hellcat Acoustic is based on the Rancid guitarist's favorite beat-up '60s Fender acoustic guitar. Fender keeps the vibe of Armstrong's time-tested axe, but gives it a touch of modern flair and style, captured in the pearl acrylic "Hellcat" logos on the 3rd, 5th, and 7th frets. The Tim Armstrong Hellcat Acoustic sounds fantastic unplugged - thanks to its solid mahogany top and mahogany back and sides. But, onboard you'll find a Fender FTE-3TN preamplifier with a built-in tuner, so you can take the stage with your Tim Armstrong Hellcat Acoustic.

  • Left-handed version
  • Based on Rancid's Tim Armstrong's favorite '60s Fender acoustic
  • All-mahogany body, for superb acoustic tone

Left-handed version
This is the left-handed version of the Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat Acoustic.

Based on Rancid's Tim Armstrong's favorite '60s Fender acoustic
Tim Armstrong is the songwriter behind the infamous punk band Rancid - and behind each of those songs stands Armstrong's songwriting partner: his trusty old '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.

All-mahogany body, for superb acoustic tone
The Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat Acoustic guitar sports a solid mahogany top and mahogany back and sides, giving it a rich and warm voice pumping from its concert-sized body style with Fender's advanced scalloped bracing. The instrument also features a maple neck, a rosewood fingerboard, and vintage-style open-gear tuners.

Take the stage in style, thanks to an onboard preamplifier/tuner system
While the Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat Acoustic is primed for great tone unplugged, Fender also packed it with their FTE3-TN preamplifier, complete with a built-in tuner as well as volume, bass, middle, and treble controls - that way, you're always ready to take your songs to the stage.

Stylish "Hellcat" and Skull inlays add a touch of modern style
To give the Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat Acoustic a look all its own, it sports pearl acrylic "Hellcat" fret inlays as well as two skulls adorning its twelfth fret. With the guitar, you also get the Tim Armstrong custom "Lets Go" strap.

This guitar gets played the most

My title says it all in my humble opinion. This has become the guitar I am most likely to pick up and play, noodle or practice. My Taylor sits all the time now. My electrics are also getting a lot less time.I started with Electrics. I always wanted an acoustic that played, fit and felt like my electrics. Well, that is nigh on impossible. However, this Hellcat comes as close as you can ask for.I also wanted a smaller body. For practice, I don't really need the volume of a big dreadnaught. Of all the other Acoustics I tried of similar size, The Hellcat just sounded best. It's a balanced tone, not too bright, not too boomy, scooped, etc.The neck is one of more comfortable I've found. reminds me of my Taylor, as well as my Les Pauls. Satin finish is very fast to play. Also has a nice radius that I like. Body fits and feels nice. Really comfortable to play. Love the Mahogany grain all the way around. The guitar is really beautiful look to it. I could do with, or without the hellcat and skull. But, they do set it apart.The Fishman electronics were MADE for this guitar. They sound great together. Ran through my Zoom A3, the Hellcat sounds glorious. A part of me knows my Taylor is a better guitar. But, I am likely selling it, as it is NOT a better guitar for me. The Hellcat, fits well, plays extremely well, is comfortable, and sounds good. I'm giving it a 5, because at this price, it rates a 5. If it were $100-200 more, then a 4.

A hella of a guitar

I bought this from a Sweetwater trusted source and was anxious to try it out. It came as all do in pristine condition and set correctly by the staff. All I can say, is WOW!!, i didn't know what I was missing until my first run down the fret board. The harmonics are so easy to chime. I thought the workmanship was first notch, but disappointed that it was manufactured in China as that dilute the resale value.

Tim Armstrong Hellcat Acoustic

I was really blown away when I received my Hellcat Guitar, the sound and the look is just perfect. And I'm left handed and was able to get it in a left handed model. My friends and family who have seen it are amazed at the craftmanship and the sound. I really give it high marks.

FENDER TIM ARMSTRONG HELLCAT ACOUSTIC

The Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat is a really decent guitar and worth the price of admission. There's good attention to detail, construction, action, electronics, performance, projection, etc. Mine's a lefty and in my opinion, just as nice as some of the more expensive guitars. Is it as good as a Martin or Taylor? Nah, not supposed to be, but for this price it's excellent and better than the competition.
