Jim Root Jazzmaster | Artist Signature Series | Fender


collapse expand iconDescription

The Fender Jim Root Jazzmaster V4 is built to unleash crushing metal tones. Fender worked closely with Slipknot guitarist Jim Root to design every detail of this signature model around his heavy playing style, from the EMG Jim Root Signature Daemonum active pickups to the 12" radius ebony fretboard. The result is a weapon of mass distortion tuned for detuned demolition.

EMG Active Pickups Deliver Quintessential Metal Tone

The Open-coil EMG Jim Root Signature Daemonum pickups are the heart of the Jazzmaster V4's brutal sound. These active humbuckers have been tailored to Jim Root's specifications to produce tight, crushing mids and lows with just the right amount of high-end sizzle for defined chords and leads.

Hardtail Bridge Enhances Sustain

Unlike a traditional Jazzmaster, the V4 features a string-through-body hardtail bridge with block saddles instead of a tremolo system. This design dramatically improves sustain and tuning stability for heavy drop tunings and aggressive playing styles.

Mahogany Body Provides Thick, Meaty Tone

The V4's mahogany body gives this signature model a thick, meaty tone with punchy mids that cut through a mix. Its satin Polar White finish highlights the guitar's minimalist vibe and no-frills design.

Designed for Fast, Fluid Fretwork

A 12" radius ebony fretboard with 22 jumbo frets is built for fast, fluid fretwork and low action. The V4 also features a C-shaped maple neck for maximum comfort and playability.
