Hear Jim Root speak about his signature Fender Jazzmaster:

Sleek Mahogany Jazzmaster Body

You'll certainly feel the weight that this mahogany body has, but this baby's Jazzmaster shape features a cool-looking and comfortable beveled cut that rests naturally against your front. Mahogany wood will bring out the lower and middle frequencies, so your tone will be fueled with plenty of body, depth, and sustain. You can play this axe knowing that you'll look as great as you sound.

Maple Neck in Comfy Modern C Shape

The maple neck on your Jim Root Jazzmaster is cut into a comfortable modern C shape, which is great for speedy runs. Maple wood will bring a somewhat bright sounding snappiness to your tone, and a read more smooth ebony fingerboard spans 22 frets and boasts some wonderful playability. This neck is addicting to the touch, so get your fingers ready for some serious speed.

EMG 81 and EMG 60 Humbuckers

An EMG 81 bridge and an EMG 60 neck humbucker pairing gives you all of the full and rich tone needed to forge a wall of metal through your amplifier. EMG pickups are very popular among metal players because of the rich articulation they bring to the table. These baddies are the perfect pair for heart-stopping power-chord chugs and wailing leads. You'll never be able to get enough of how much tonal force these babies lay right at your fingertips.

6-Saddle Strings-Thru-Body Strat Bridge

This axe is all about minimalism. From its single master volume control to its absence of fret position inlays, Jim Root went as bare-bones as he could with this design. A 6-saddle American Series strings-thru-body Strat bridge with block-style saddles keeps things simple and minimal both aesthetically and mechanically.

Fender Jim Root Jazzmaster

Stark, dark, and menacing, the Fender Jim Root Jazzmaster guitar has got to be the most distinctively minimalist version of the instrument ever devised in the model's entire half-century history. 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. Gone, in fact, is pretty much everything typical of a Jazzmaster guitar, replaced only by fearsome EMG 60 (neck) and 81 (bridge) humbucking pickups with brushed nickel covers, a single three-way switch, a single volume knob and a hard-tail Stratocaster bridge.

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.


- Large '70s-style Headstock with Jim Root's Signature on the Back
- Active EMG Pickups
- Black Bezels
- Contoured Neck Heel
- No Position Inlays on Fingerboard Face, Side Dots Only
- No Pickguard
- Straplock Ready Strap Buttons
- Single "T" Roller String Tree
- Side Mounted Output Jack
- Rear Routed Control Cavity

Jim Root, showing his love for Fender's classic body shapes, while also creating wonderfully tortuous, turbulent, and high gain guitar tones, have came together in a perfect blend of classic, and modern metal. His take on the Jazzmaster really only takes after its namesake in shape. Switching from alder to mahogany body material, dual, active humbuckers from EMG, the 81/60 combo is capable of earsplitting high gain tones all the way to creamy leads and even clear, sultry cleans. With only one volume knob, this Jazzmaster is ready to rip, and most definetley is NOT your grandpa's Jazzmaster. The satin black finish evokes mean, evil looks, with the blank fretboard finishing the clean, stripped down look. This axe took the JM body style and brought it to modern metal in a big way. 25.5 inch scale allows for lower tuning, to bring those growling, booming riffs to life without the "string flap" you can get with shorter scales, and the active EMGs provide clear, articulate riffing in high gain situations. If you're after a classic look, while melting the faces off of the folks who are within earshot, then this awesome signature series is everything you have dreamed of. With locking Fender tuners on an oversized 70s headstock , tuning is stable and steadfast when smashing on those aggressive , ripping metal riffs. 10 out of 10 in my opinion, rapidly becoming my go to workhorse guitar, because this thing has everything a modern metal player could ever want.
Musical Background:
Semi professional, played in several bands, some touring.
Musical Style:
Hard rock/Heavy Metal, Metal-core.
