Fender Releases Tim Armstrong Deluxe Acoustic Guitar

The Tim Armstrong Deluxe features a solid mahogany top, bone nut and saddle, dot fingerboard inlays and Fishman Neo-D soundhole pickup with end pink jack.

Scottsdale, AZ (October 16, 2012) – Fender proudly announces the release of the Tim Armstrong Deluxe guitar, a six-string acoustic model designed in conjunction with Rancid founder Tim Armstrong.

Available in both right-handed and left-handed models, the Tim Armstrong Deluxe features a solid mahogany top, bone nut and saddle, dot fingerboard inlays and Fishman Neo-D soundhole pickup with end pink jack (just like Armstrong’s modded guitar).

The guitar isn’t the only thing designed by Armstrong – the accessories have his personal touch as well. Wield your Tim Armstrong Deluxe with an embossed leather "Let’s Go" strap, and store it in a deluxe textured vinyl-covered case when you’re done.
