Stark, dark and menacing, the 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.

    Comments about Fender Jim Root Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

    Typically we see Jazzmasters on stage with indie rocks greats My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth, and Dinosaur Jr. It is not to common to see them gracing heavy metal stages worldwide but Jim Root of Slipknot and Fender have teamed up to give us a sleek, stripped down and robust version of a classic design.

    This guitar is packed with an EMG 81 in the bridge and 60 in the neck, and C profile neck and ebony board. The bridge is a hardtail found common on a Strat and ditching the vibrato typically found on Jazzmasters.

    The tone is very fender but bleeding into Les Paul territory with its pairing of a thick Mahogany body and ebony board.

    This guitar is very limited and in high demand not only with Sam Ash but everywhere! get them while we still have them!
