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.

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 do love this guitar It feels really amazing to play and I have had it for 2 years now. It was always my go to guitar to play anything the Pickups are not as hot as I would expect but it's good for maybe some things toned down a bit. soft rock ect. Overall I love it but I have had to fix it up frequently loose knobs/Input jack ect. I wouldn't have it as my main squeeze but I do love it.

    My aspiring, 17 yo twin boys, each bought one. The plain look, flat finish is really quite nice. Well built and nearly spot on, out of the box. Ceramic pickups sound great to me.

      Comments about Squier Jim Root Signature Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      Really enjoying this guitar! I hesitated about purchasing, so glad i did. Neck feel is great and the satin finish just makes it play so smooth. Comfortable to play sitting and standing. I have always wanted a tele but wanted something a little different. This fit the bill perfectly. If you have thought about this guitar but the lack of reviews etc. may be keep you from buying. Just get it you will be glad you did!

        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.

              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
