Comments about Squier Jim Root Signature Telecaster Electric Guitar:

If you like Jim Root's versions of Fenders as much as I do then buy this guitar. Then immediately order EMGS(81 and 60) and you will have a beast of a guitar!!!!! I have the Fender Custom Shop Jim Root Strat and I can't tell the difference in quality(except for pickups) in the 2 guitars. All you have to do is buy this guitar with a set of EMGs and you'll have Jim Root tone.

      Comments about Squier Jim Root Signature Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      HEAVY MAHOGANY BODY YOU WILL HAVE TO BALANCE. Body is to heavy for neck which will cause you to do a balancing act. Please be aware before you purchase this axe. This "Squier" Jim Root model would of rated high if they used alder for body & would be better balanced. Nothing worse when you have to play!

        Comments about Squier Jim Root Signature Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        I wasn't sure if I should get this guitar or not but im glad I did. I read a tone of reviews ,but I made the choice to go with it. Seen a lot of people down this guitar because it doesn't have the emgs and was bad feel but that's bull. Had an awesome neck feel and a really good sound. True not the hottest pickups but I like em better then emgs. This is a great buy. And not top heavy ,great to play standing up or down which is something I look at when I buy a guitar. I'm a 100% satisfied with this guitar. Plus got it packaged and set up just right when I got it

        Comments about Squier Jim Root Signature Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        I am writing another review for this guitar because i have a lot more experience now with guitars and will tell a little more detailed review..... Alright, this guitar IS NOT BAD!!! it's a good guitar, it plays nice, the neck feels nice and fast, it stays IN TUNE. I had bought it for the same price at my local music shop, and I didn't think it would be good because it was a Squier, but as soon as I played it, i was SHOCKED..... I really don't see why people say this guitar is cheap. The pickups though, are not really that hot, so i am going to be putting a Dimarzio D-Activator in the bridge and keeping the neck Pup Stock.

        Jim Root Signature Telecaster

        By 

        from Baton Rouge LA

        Comments about Squier Jim Root Signature Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        i did save some money on it but still overpriced. I will need to bring it to my tech to adjust the string height. I am not in a hurry to do this as it plays ok. THE GUITAR WAS PACKAGED WELL
        Its a decent starter guitar, I bought the white one and love the looks of it. The pickups are OK as the guitar sounds good. I dont need a case because it hangs on the wall.
        the input jack on mine is cheap, the selector switch could be better. the pickups are decent for now. The bridge pickup could be hotter, because the neck pickup is loud. The one volume tone contol, I dont like but its a starter guitar for my son and its better than what I had in 77, not by much.
        Over priced -

        Bland

        By 

        from West Columbia ,Texas

        Comments about Squier Jim Root Signature Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        From looks it looks great. But looks can be decieving. Almost exactly like his signature. It's no where near as smoth and easy as its big brother (to play). Pickups are crap. Sound is bland and boring. Which is the exact opposite of Jims real tele. If you're looking for a show case guitar just because you like Slipknot or Stone Sour then look no further. But if you're looking to get their amazing sound just save and buy the big boy. This guitar is not for the serious guitar player, maybe a begginer.
        Sounds like crap.
        Very cheaply made.
        You get exactly what you paid for is this case.
