Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat Acoustic-Electric Guitar Review by: Mike Lally {Recap}

Well known as the Grammy-winning founder of influential U.S. punk band Rancid, Tim Armstrong is also well respected as a producer and indie label owner. But as a songwriter, he has always turned to his old Fender concert-style acoustic for inspiration. The Tim Armstrong Hellcat is based on Armstrong’s own classic instrument, with modern appointments including high-quality onboard electronics. A great guitar for pop, rock, folk and more, it has a solid mahogany top for especially sweet sound and a satin-finish maple neck for smooth playability.

Timothy Lockwood Armstrong (born November 25, 1965), is an American musician, songwriter, and producer. He is best known as the singer/guitarist for the punk rock band Rancid and hip hop/punk rock supergroup the Transplants. Prior to forming Rancid, Armstrong was in the influential ska punk band Operation Ivy. In 1997, along with Brett Gurewitz of the band Bad Religion and owner of Epitaph Records, Armstrong founded Hellcat Records. In 2012, through his website, Armstrong started releasing music that influenced him, along with stripped-down cover songs of his own work under the name Tim Timebomb. He has released at least one song per week since late 2012. Armstrong is also an accomplished and sought-after songwriter for other artists. Armstrong won a Grammy Award for his work with Jimmy Cliff and Pink and he has also worked with Gwen Stefani and Joe Walsh.

Cool demo. I really like the shorter scale length on this guitar. I have an old DG-7 Fender with a broken truss rod that I have started playing again after quite a while. Although, I have many other “better” guitars, I have found inspiration in that old Fender that surprised me. I played this model today, and it seems similar… maybe better? A good songwriting guitar for sure, but the action did seem high… could come down a little. I don’t mind a little buzz when I hit the strings hard.

Dayon Mage says:

I don’t consider myself an expert, but this guitar sounds dispersed and disorderly. Not punchy and pure like those Guild mahoganies.
