A no-frills model with a sleek demeaner and powerful EMG pickups.
Stark, dark and menacing, the Jim Root Jazzmaster 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, compoundradius 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.

Comments about Fender Jim Root Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:
Bought this guitar roughly a month ago and I just love it. You can lower the action almost all the way on the frets with heavy gauge strings and no fret buzz. It's perfect for metal and if you turn the volume down and switch to the neck pick-up you get a great blues type tone out of it. This is my first artist signature guitar and I have no regrets with it. If your a fan of metal this is definitely the right choice. Jim Root did an awesome job with this guitar and just like he said in the video he wanted something where he could walk into any guitar store and buy his signature model if need be.
