Fender Tim Armstrong Anniversary Hellcat announced: "It's very loyal to the original guitar I’ve had since I was a teenager"

Fender has announced the latest in a series of Tim Armstrong collaborations, the Tim Armstrong Anniversary Hellcat Artist Signature acoustic.

The guitar giant has been working with Armstrong since 2010, and the latest joint effort is a signature acoustic based on Armstrong's own instrument, a '60s Fender concert-style acoustic.

“The Tim Armstrong Anniversary Hellcat is the culmination of a decade of great work with Fender,” said Tim Armstrong.

It's a typical Fender Artist Signature edition, in that it takes the original instrument as starting point and, while it aims for a recreation feel, this Hellcat adds upgraded modern specs like a solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides, maple “C” shape neck, high quality onboard electronics, gold hardware and Armstrong’s signature “Hellcat and double skulls” inlay. 

There's a Fishman Preamp with tuner onboard too, and you can see and hear the guitar in action above and below.

Tim Armstrong Anniversary Hellcat is listed at £429/€469. For more info, see Fender.com.
