Heavy mahogany for a heavy modern rock icon.

The Jim Root electric guitar is a truly modern Fender Tele built for big sounds! As lead guitarist for Slipknot and Stone Sour, Jim Root is one of today's leading heavy guitarists. This Telecaster guitar from the Artist Series was a labor of love for both Jim and Fender, combining several unique features to give it an identity all its own.

A Telecaster for the new millennium, the Jim Root Tele features a warmly resonant mahogany body with active EMG® pickups for high headroom, thick distortion, and pristine clean sounds. The black hardware, and flat finish offer a unique and heavy aesthetic.

If you're looking for a Tele that "goes to 11," the Jim Root Artist Series is your guitar. Includes case.

  • Jim Root Tele = <3

    As reviewed by Zero on 6/6/2009

    I've had this guitar now for almost a year, and I'm nothing short but in love with it! This guitar can basically do anything. The neck is perfect for what I do. The schallers work beautifully. The EMGs are very dynamic with their tone. The EMGs really get a VERY metal tone. Pinch harmonics are a synch on this beauty as well. This guitar is definitely worth every penny! It looks amazing, it sounds amazing, and feels amazing!. My only gripe with it is the paint job. The paint is worn fairly easily, but thats nothing a little touch up cant cure. And im not talking fading. Im talking more of like little tiny blemishes that are hard to notice, and only people who are very picky would catch onto. Otherwise this guitar is phenomenal. A telecaster with an Ebony Fretboard, EMGs, and schaller locking tuners?! Its a steal! The case is nice too. =]

  • Solid, heavy duty rock guitar

    As reviewed by Dan in S.IL on 3/19/2011

    I purchased this guitar recently (Black,white pick guard, maple neck). The locking tuners are simple, easy to use and maked restringing very fast and easy. Guitar stays in tune with deep hard bends. The neck seems finished well and the frets feel meaty, it seems like I can play faster on this neck than my other guitars. The body is big, solid and heavy, which I like. The pickups make natural and pinch harmonics easy to achieve. Should not have to tell you what the EMGs can do, great pickup combo. However, in the middle position, I have not found useful on clean or distorted. The finish, paint, color is not pretty nor flashy and that is why I love it. It comes with a very cool case and pluch red interior. The only reason I rate this guitar a 4 is because there is no tone knob, which I think would be very useful for tweaking some sounds. I recomend this guitar for hard rock to metal players as it serves lead soloing and rhythm/riffing styles.

  • Best guitar in the arsenal

    As reviewed by drew terlizzi on 2/17/2012

    Ive had this guitar for 5 years, I was actually one of the first to get it. It is without a doubt the best playing and sounding guitar Ive ever played or owned. Ive owned close to thirty guitars and this is the only one i have kept out of all of them and i will never get rid of it. Most people say that all guitar loaded with emgs sound alike but this is a prime example that they dont. This guitar has the high output but has a really low bassy sound to it which makes it sound huge which is from the excellent combinations of wood.
