An intense signature Fender Strat designed for metal.

The Fender Jim Root Stratocaster electric guitar is as unique as Slipknot's guitar maestro himself. Featuring a black mahogany body and a 25-1/2" scale maple neck with a thin "C" shape and an oversized headstock fitted with Fender Deluxe cast/sealed locking tuning machines. A smooth ebony fretboard sports 22 jumbo frets and a 12" to 16" compound radius that promotes super fast shredding. The Fender Jim Root guitar has an EMG-60 active humbucker (neck) and EMG-81 active humbucker (bridge) that let your solos roar through the crowd. A 6-saddle strings-through-body hardtail bridge adds even more sustain to the Fender Stratocaster sound. Includes a hardshell guitar case.

  • WOW! What a guitar!

    As reviewed by Will on 6/30/2010

    This guitar truly illustrates how versatile Fender is of a guitar brand. It's not often you see a guitar brand that can consistently make new guitars that appeal to almost every guitarist playing any genre, but Fender is one of those brands. The Jim Root Stratocaster is fantastic, allowing the player to get heavy distorted sounds with the highly rated EMG pickups. The guitar sounds great on any effect the player wants. The looks of the guitar are obviously beautiful, with the ebony fretboard, black pick guard and body, and white headstock with black tuning pegs, the guitar is a masterpiece. I would highly recommend this guitar to any hard rock/metal player, it looks fantastic, sounds fantastic, and is totally worth the money!

  • An Axe You Will Love!

    As reviewed by Matt on 5/18/2011

    This is a modern guitarist's dream. The EMG pickups are clear, present, and handle low end frequencies and detuned playing unbelievably well. Despite being a guitar designed for modern-high gain sounds, warm vintage tones can be achieved with ease. Overall, this is an amazing signature series American stratocaster. It is not a Mexican model like the telecaster version. The maple neck feels amazing and the ebony fingerboard paired with the mahogany body creates natural sustain. The only issue I have with this guitar is the flat finish; however, this is merely preference regarding the style of paint job. If you have the money and you are thinking about buying this guitar, go for it. You will not be disappointed.

  • Growl that'll scare you!

    As reviewed by John Corsello on 5/27/2010

    Straight away let me say this guitar would garner 5 stars if not for the headstock. My guess is that owners of this axe are frequently asked; "is that a Highway One?" That aside this guitar comes at you like an 18 wheeler full throttle down the interstate. It's made to be played loud. I placed it on a flat surface just to see if the strings touched the fingerboard - the action is that close. And all you need to know about its heavenly growl is that it has only one knob - volume. If you enjoy turning up to plate glass shattering decibels and want tonal quality to go along with that volume this is the axe for you.
