The Jim Root electric guitar is
a truly modern Fender Tele built for big sounds! As lead guitarist for Slipknot
and Stone Sour, Jim Root is one of today's leading heavy guitarists. This
Telecaster guitar from the Artist Series was a labor of love for both Jim and
Fender, combining several unique features to give it an identity all its own.
A Telecaster for the new millennium, the Jim Root Tele features a warmly
resonant mahogany body with active EMG® pickups for high headroom, thick
distortion, and pristine clean sounds. The black hardware, and flat finish
offer a unique and heavy aesthetic.
If you're looking for a Tele that "goes to 11," the Jim Root Artist
Series is your guitar.
