Together with Fender, Jim Root designed his signature Jazzmaster with a minimalist approach, a far departure from the norm of the Jazzmaster! At the behest of the towering Slipknot/Stone Sour guitarist, gone are the dual tone circuits and barrage of controls. Gone are the fret position markers and enormous chrome bridge. Fearsome EMG 60 and 81 humbuckers with brushed nickel covers, a 3-way switch, a volume knob and a hard-tail Stratocaster bridge make this a lethal rock machine.
The Jim Root Jazzmaster also features a mahogany body with a comfortable contoured neck heel, satin-finish maple neck with ‘modern C’ profile and large headstock, compound-radius ebony fingerboard (12-16 inches) with 22 jumbo frets and no position markers, staggered deluxe locking tuners, black hardware and pickup bezels, and an austere Flat Black satin-nitro lacquer finish. Includes black tweed case with red plush interior, strap and strap locks, cable and polishing cloth.
