6-String Electric Guitar with Mahogany Body, Maple Neck, and Ebony Fingerboard - EMG 60 and EMG 81 Humbucking Pickups


Crushing Strat Tone

For heavy, molten nu-metal Strat® style, the Jim Root Stratocaster delivers crushing detuned tone with a stark utilitarian look. The towering Slipknot guitarist joined us in creating a huge-sounding signature Strat model that complements his heavy playing style, and it’s a monster—right down to its compound-radius fingerboard (12” to 16”), EMG® active humbucking pickups, sparse control layout and more. Brutal.



Fender Jim Root Stratocaster Features:

  • Mahogany body with sharp radius
  • Modern “C”-shaped neck profile and large headstock
  • Ebony or maple compound-radius fingerboard (12” to 16”) with 22 jumbo frets and no position inlays (side-dot inlays only)
  • EMG® 60 (neck) and 81 (bridge) active humbucking pickups
  • Single control knob (volume) and three-way pickup switch
  • Hardtail strings-thru-body bridge

EMG Active Humbucking Pickups

For a decidedly non-traditional design and configuration, the crushing nu-metal sound of the Jim Root Stratocaster is produced by a fearsome pair of EMG® active humbucking pickups.


Compound-Radius Fingerboard

This instrument features a compound-radius fingerboard, a sophisticated and carefully crafted feature in which the fingerboard has a more pronounced curvature across its width near the nut (ideal for chording) and gradually flattens to a very slight curvature toward the upper frets (perfect for bending notes and soloing).

Locking Tuners

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.

Ebony and Maple Fingerboards

The Jim Root Stratocaster in Flat White features a traditional maple fingerboard with no inlays. The Flat Black model has a darkly alluring ebony fingerboard with no inlays.

Satin Lacquer Finish

The finish on this instrument combines the resonance and thin breathability of lacquer with the stylishly muted matte look of a satin color coat.

Jumbo Frets

The largest of the fret sizes, jumbo frets are tall and wide, which lets you get a better grip on the strings, enabling more control over them and making bends and vibrato easier. A good choice for players with larger hands and thicker fingers.
