Based on Armstrong's '60s Fender Acoustic GuitarTim Armstrong's worn-and-torn Fender acoustic axe has been with him for years and years of songwriting and performances, and now you can harness the tonal treats that this guitar has to offer. Aside from delivering a vintage '60s look, feel, and sound, this baby also features a few modern updates that give it even more tonal flair with a self-assured visual edge.
Simple Onboard Controls to Shape Your SoundOn the top left shoulder of your Hellcat acoustic guitar, you'll find a simple set of controls to fine-tune your tone. You have master volume, bass, middle, and treble knobs. This control center also features an onboard tuner so you can keep your intonation in check on the go. Taking in and projecting your Hellcat's warm tone is Fishman's clear and reliable Isys III system. Trust these reliable electronics to transfer every pick and strum into a well-articulated signal full of body, color, and clarity.
Snappy Maple Neck and Cool Hellcat Position InlaysMaple is a great wood for acoustic-electric guitar necks -- it adds an appropriate edge of snap and brightness to your playing. Whether you're strumming softly or aggressively, you can play assured that your axe will be heard. Topped with a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard, this sturdy melodic appendage features cool Hellcat position inlays as well as a pair of skulls at the 12th fret.
Rich-Sounding Mahogany BodyThe Hellcat's solid mahogany top does your playing justice by placing emphasis on your lower and middle frequencies for a tone full of body and depth. The mahogany back and sides just add to this acoustic-electric axe's warm, robust tone. You'll never be short of tonal color with your Hellcat's rich resonance.
