Back a while ago I was curious about what kind of guitar it was. In pictures th eheadstock doesnt match that of a Gretsch headstock, and under the artists section on the Hagstrom website, it lists Tim Armstrong.

Hw may have more than one kind of guitar, but he definately did have a hollowbody Hagstrom.

His main is a Gretsch. He said in Guitar World that he likes it because it's so light, like an old guitar he had a long time ago.

Um no. Thats not pwned.

Now if the threadstarter asked "What did Tim use?" and I went "y0r m0m el oh elz00rrz"

now that would be pwned.
"This shit here's called Death"
"What the fuck? You mean I'm gonna hit this shit and die?"
"No Nigga! I said Deaf. You hit this and you aint gonna hear shit!"

True punks play pawn shop guitars with half the neck broken off, leaving three strings playable. They don't know how to tune it, either.

On Rancid's first album, Armstrong recorded with a Gibson SG through a Marshall
With Let's Go, the same SG was used along with his custom-built Hagstrom Viking through the Marshall
On AOCTW, he used a Gibson Les Paul along with a Fender Stratocaster
By Life Won't Wait Armstrong used various guitars, such as the Hagstrom, Gibson Les Paul, Fender Stratocaster, and a 1974 Gretsch Country Club
On Rancid (2000) he switched to a Mesa Boogie amp and used the Hagstrom and the Gretsch Country Club
Currently Armstrong is using his Country Club and a Schecter S-1 which he started using since the Transplants released their second album, Haunted Cities


okay I copied it from wikipedia, but it's pretty complete, except for the black hollowbody, the that looks like an ES 335 or something with a bridge humbucker, but it isn't, can someone tell me what it is?

Hey guys, very n00b question but what is Tim Armstrong's main guitar?

electric guitar
And clenching your fist for the ones like us
Who are oppressed by the figures of beauty,
You fixed yourself, you said, "Well, never mind,
We are ugly, but we have the music."
