Full Description

Signature design - Tim Armstrong style

Tim Armstrong is the Grammy Award-winning founder of U.S. punk band Rancid and is also known for his production skills, alongside creating his own indie record label. The Hellcat is Tim's 12-string signature model, based on his own guitar and features additional modern appointments to give it a distinct look that will stand out from the crowd. From the "Hellcat" and double-skull fretboard inlays to the 4-ply pickguard, from the classic white body binding to the Tim's signature on the truss rod cover, there are countless unique design appointments that give the guitar splashes of carefully considered detail. And its sound doesn't disappoint either. This 12-string version of Armstrong's signature guitar is designed to produce the rich tonality and wide sound that is unique to 12-string guitars.

Indulgent sonic warmth

...that sounds even better with age. Featuring a solid mahogany top that is supported with scalloped X-bracing, the Tim Armstrong Hellcat produces instantly recognisable old-school warmth with a focused, punchy attitude. It's rich, resonant, and simply oozes pure excellence. But that's not all. The Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat 12 String allows you to reap the benefits of solid-topped tone too, developing and blossoming with even more inspiration-sparking character the more you play. Plus, with a laminate mahogany body, you have one strong, stunning instrument with a climate-resilient attitude, making it perfect for life on the go.

Immense playing comfort

It's what you deserve. So, expect an all-purpose body that's raring and ready to play your way. It features a compact, comfortable concert size that's similar in proportion to auditorium and folk guitars, while its signature Tim Armstrong design gives you a sublime platform for song writing. The comfort continues with meticulous Fender know-how and an ergonomic ''C''-shaped neck, allowing you to glide up and down the Hellcat's neck with speed and precision. Effortless. Plus, with such a versatile, responsive attitude, it's easy to play almost anything, from pop and folk, to blues, roots, and rock. You can explore to your heart's content, as this Fender Hellcat 12 String Electro Acoustic proudly puts no limits on your performance.

Showstopping style - born for the stage

A natural mahogany finish complemented by vintage details. Signature, iconic Hellcat inlays. Instantly recognisable, vintage Fender flair. It can only be the Hellcat. But it doesn't stop there. Fender know you desire a quality live sound too. So, expect a natural tone while plugged in, in any live setting - it's all courtesy of Fishman electronics. You can easily inject even more of your personality and find your own individual tone for live and studio work with an active on-board preamp. The spotlight is calling...
