Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreSt. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador
I was in the market for something smaller than a dreadnought that was also a little different from the hoards of natural high-gloss I seem to see everywhere. Price was important and luckily these days you don't have to spend $1000 to get a quality acoustic. The Hellcat checked all the boxes. It's very comfortable, sounds great, was reasonably setup out of the box (but I am getting the action lowered) and I love the look of it. The look won't be for everyone but I love it and appreciate that it's different. I waited on my order for quite awhile as L&M didn't have any in stock, nor did Fender, so I got one fresh from the factory. There are a couple of very minor cosmetic blemishes on it that I found, but they are extremely minor and not worth complaining about. I've had it a week now and couldn't be more pleased, it was worth the wait.
