The Root of Crushing Tele® Tone
For heavy, molten nu-metal Tele style, the Jim Root Telecaster delivers crushing de-tuned tone with a stark utilitarian look. The towering Slipknot guitarist worked with Fender to create a huge-sounding signature Telecaster model that complements his heavy playing style, and it’s a beast—right down to its 12”-radius fingerboard, EMG® active humbucking pickups, sparse control layout and more. Brutal.

    EMG® Active Humbucking Pickups
    EMG® Active Humbucking Pickups

    For a decidedly non-traditional design and configuration, the crushing nu-metal sound of the Jim Root Telecaster is produced by a fearsome pair of EMG® active humbucking pickups.

    12” Fingerboard Radius
    12” Fingerboard Radius

    This instrument features a fingerboard radius (the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard) that, at 12”, is substantially more flattened than both a vintage-style 7.25” radius and a modern 9.5” radius. Feels notably flat even though there’s still slight curvature, and is great for bending notes without fretting out.

    Locking Tuners
    Locking Tuners

    A convenient high-end, high-performance feature, locking tuners offer increased tuning stability, especially on tremolo-equipped guitars, and they make changing strings substantially faster and easier than conventional tuners.

    Ebony and Maple Fingerboards
    Ebony and Maple Fingerboards

    The Jim Root Stratocaster in Flat White features a traditional maple fingerboard with no inlays. The Flat Black model has a darkly alluring ebony fingerboard with no inlays.

    Satin Lacquer Mahogany Body
    Satin Lacquer Mahogany Body

    This guitar’s strong and resonant mahogany body has a finish that combines the thin breathability of lacquer with the stylishly muted matte look of a satin color coat.

    Black Hardware

    In a pleasingly malevolent touch, the sparsely appointed Jim Root Telecaster features an all-black bridge, controls, bridge pickup bezel, tuners, strap buttons and more.
