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. 

Overview:

When investing in such an aggressive and mesmerising guitar, the pickups are one of the first things to investigate. The Fender Jim Root Telecaster does not disappoint. With Active EMG humbuckers equipped at the bridge and neck, you can be sure to deliver a tone that has bite and an abundance of sheer power. The EMG 81 bridge pickup is punchy in tone, whilst also retaining the thickness needed for such an all-encompassing sound. The neck EMG 60 humbucker offers a tone which is totally different, allowing you the freedom to create a unique sound. It is remarkably warm and crisp, perfect for focusing on those piercing notes or mellower sections of your music.

The humbuckers have been constructed from close aperture coils and utilise ceramic magnets for that full, meaty tone. Better still, they can be pushed to their full potential with no noise, meaning every note you play will shine with glorious definition. Use the 3-position blade switch to choose between or mix these two tones for a sound that is distinctive to you.

The body of this guitar has been constructed in such a way that adds a tremendous amount of glistening tonal benefits. Crafted from mahogany, it provides a rich and resonant tone that begs the wondrous textures of sparkling harmonies. This depth of sound is picked up by the sharp and exhilarating humbuckers, resulting in an immersive, breath-taking sound that your audience won't be able to turn away from. Mahogany is also conveniently sturdy, a desired attribute for any metal guitarist wanting to absolutely thrash on stage without any inhibition. A robust model like the Fender Jim Root Telecaster can take it. If exceptional strength isn't enough, the string-thru design of the body promises to enhance your playing experience even more. Experience glorious sustain caused by the transfer of vibrations as the strings travel over the hardtail bridge and pass through the body. Every single note you play will be projected out into the room with immense force and is guaranteed to ring out with razor-sharp clarity.

The neck of this guitar features a C shaped profile, perfect for whizzing up and down the fretboard with the ultimate comfort. The smooth finish and 12" radius of the fretboard then allows you to bend notes easily and accurately. As well as offering that sought-after playability, promising to make your life on stage so much easier, the neck and fretboard are wonderfully strong and enrich every note you play. Built from maple, the neck can withstand any fiery gig, whilst the ebony fretboard is sturdy enough to handle any attack from your rapid fretting. The two of these tonewoods combined bring harmonic benefits that team beautifully with the mahogany body. Their focus on the mid to high frequencies results in a bright tone that has sparkling definition, a gorgeous accompaniment to the resonance that flows beneath.
