Fender Jim Root Telecaster Flat White, Ebony
Fender Jim Root Tele Product Overview by GAK
For heavy, molten nu-metal Tele style, the Jim Root Telecaster delivers crushing detuned tone with a stark utilitarian look. The towering Slipknot guitarist worked with Fender to create a huge-sounding signature Telecaster model that complements his heavy playing style, and it's a beast—right down to its 12" radius Ebony fingerboard, EMG active humbucking pickups, sparse control layout and more. Brutal.
Featuring a Mahogany body, Flat Black and Flat White satin nitro-lacquer finishes, Ebony or Maple 12”-radius fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, EMG 60 (neck) and 81 (bridge) active humbucking pickups, a Single control knob (volume) and three-way pickup switch, Hardtail strings-thru-body bridge
For a decidedly non-traditional design and configuration, the crushing nu-metal sound of the Jim Root Telecaster is produced by a fearsome pair of EMG active humbucking pickups.
This instrument features a 12" fingerboard radius (the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard) that is substantially more flattened than both a vintage-style 7.25" radius and a modern 9.5" radius. Feels notably flat even though there’s still slight curvature, and is great for bending notes without fretting out.
A convenient high-end, high-performance feature, locking tuners offer increased tuning stability, especially on tremolo-equipped guitars, and they make changing strings substantially faster and easier than conventional tuners.
The Jim Root Telecaster offers a darkly alluring ebony fingerboard for smooth performance and a touch of elegance.
This guitar’s strong and resonant mahogany body has a finish that combines the thin breathability of lacquer with the stylishly muted matte look of a satin colour coat.
In a pleasingly malevolent touch, the sparsely appointed Jim Root Telecaster features an all-black bridge, controls, bridge pickup bezel, tuners, strap buttons and more.
