Jim Root is one of metal's most iconic players! Being an integral part of metal history as the lead guitarist of Slipknot, Jim Root has undoubtably inspired a generation of guitarists. Following the success of the famous Jim Root signature Telecaster, this year brings us a crushing signature Jazzmaster.

This guitar has already proved itself to be incredibly popular so don't wait around to get your hands on one!

Overview:

The Jim Root Jazzmaster V4 goes against the grain with its non-typical Fender tonewood combinations. Built around a thick Mahogany slab body, the Jim Root Jazzmaster has a rich sound with deep lows and punchy mids; perfect for hosting the high-output EMG pickups and accommodating drop-tunings.

Joined to the body is a bolt-on, "Thin C"-shaped Maple neck that introduces some essential top-end brightness and snap, adorned with a smooth Ebony fingerboard that offers a luxurious feel under the fingers. While the vintage-esque block inlays clearly indicate fret placement, ergonomic "Luminlay" fluorescent side dots are another great touch; illuminating on dark stages.

Jim Root has been associated with EMG for most of his career in Slipknot, and his new EMG "Daemonum" open-coil active humbuckers are voiced specifically for handling crushing high-gain amp tones with ease. With a wide dynamic range too, these pickups are able to remain clear and articulate with heavy gauge strings tuned as low as drop B or A - tunings that the man himself uses.

The Jim Root Jazzmaster V4 dispenses with frivolities like a tremolo, rhythm circuit or tone control. With this guitar - only the essentials remain. A simple volume control, 3-way pickup switch and resonant hardtail bridge make this guitar a single-purpose weapon of mass destruction!
