Very nice guitar for the price.
What is your opinion of this product?
Plays great, sounds good. Just like all other reviews, this guitar is quiet for acoustic but is meant to be plugged into an amp and played amplified, which it does quite well. I love the neck feel, the intonation never goes out, even when playing punk. The finish is great although some polish build up on neck ( I call it character spots) that are not visible but you can feel them. Overall, I love this guitar and now want the Deluxe to complete my collection.

Your general opinion of this product.
I don't know who Tim Armstong is, but i bought this guitar because i was looking for a small Folk Guitar. i love everything about this guitar... the fretboard inlays, the dark tone, the size of the body & neck... all just wonderful. great price. i'll be putting some LaBella Silk & Steel strings on it soon to give it more of a folk feel & sound.

Overall Great Guitar For The Money!
Your general opinion of this product.
This is my second Fender A/E guitar. My first guitar, which is my main guitar is a 140SCE. I absolutely love this guitar but haven't had my Tim Armstrong long enough to use those words to describe it yet.

Not Bad at all
Your general opinion of this product.
This guitar from the factory is nothing to brag about, but with 3 changes this guitar sounds like my Martin. To start with the strings that comes from fender stink. Replace them with a set of Martin’s the heaver the better I went with 12’s. Next I put an o-port in the sound hole, it made the guitar sing like it was solid wood. The last thing I did was change the bridge pins to bone. I did all of this for $45 and the guitar sounds like I spent over $1,000 on it.
