What we say:Slipknot's Jim Root has a habit of making rather iconoclastic choices with his range of signature Fender guitars. Despite playing ferociously heavy metal, Jim routinely chooses traditional guitars like Strats and Teles for his main arsenal, albeit having each one modded for extreme power.
This newest addition to the collection is a flat black Jazzmaster with Root's now-familiar austere sensibilities: a single volume control and pickup selector, everything else gone, including the pickguard. The pickups are Jim's favourite EMG's: an 81 and a 60. Everything on this guitar apart from the pickup covers is blacker than a starless night. The (black) tuners are locking models and the (very dark) ebony fretboard has jumbo frets and a pleasing compound radius of 12 to 16". It's built for monster gain tones and crushing heaviness. It's a Jazzmaster in name only: sonically it's from a far louder place.
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”) 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.
