Layers Upon Layers of Punk-Approved Power!
Known for his trailblazing work with groups like Rancid and The Transplants, Tim Armstrong does like to quiet things down at times on more intimate songs. With the Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat 12-string acoustic-electric guitar, Armstrong fans can nail that same rich, deep tone from their favorite recordings.
A Workhorse for Punk's Softer Side
Crafted in a square shoulder concert body shape, this acoustic-electric features a mahogany laminate back and sides and a solid mahogany top. The result is a tone that's warm and woody, while still keeping each note well-defined. Attached to the body is the Hellcat's comfortable and smooth maple neck with a satin finish.
Twelve Strings Add Depth
The Hellcat's 12 strings sprawl out over the fretboard, meeting down at the elegant and wide bridge with compensated saddle. The 12-string design adds depth to chord strumming and helps prove this isn't just a guitar for the black-denim-and-safety-pin crowd. Folk players will appreciate the power packed into the relatively thin body and R&B players will love how luscious seventh and other extended chords will sound through the Hellcat.
Electronics Bring the Hellcat to a Roar
Equipped with a Fishman Isys III pickup/preamp system, the Hellcat-12 is ready for the stage, helping you project that full-bodied sound to the back of the venue. The system includes volume, bass, mid, and treble controls that can sculpt the sound to your tastes. The Isis III also offers an onboard tuner to ensure each one of your 12 strings is on key throughout the show.
