Fender Jim Root Jazzmaster Electric Guitar, Flat Black

The Fender Jim Root Jazzmaster Electric Guitar is the collaboration between slipknot’s Jim Root and Fender, creating a minimalist version of a classic design. Taking the core elements of the Jazz master guitar, Jim Root scrapped everything that wasn’t needed and swapped the pickups for a set of powerful EMGs. The idea behind the minimalist approach was to create a guitar to be as road worthy as possible, choosing a flat black finish that wouldn’t show the dirt and mess of a live guitar but allowing the characteristics of the player to reflect on its surface. Its ebony fingerboard adds plenty of tightness and definition to its sound, while the EMG pickups deliver thick, punchy tones that any metal guitarist would love. With its smooth contours, modern C profile and compound radius fingerboard, the signature Jazzmaster is built for both lead and rhythm players, delivering incredible tones with fast or complex playing styles.

A Minimalist Approach

When it came to creating his won Fender Jazzmaster, Jim Root decided to scrap everything that wasn't important to the core guitar elements. Instead, Jim wanted a minimalist guitar that was as road worthy as possible, due to the live shows with Slipknot where things could get dirty or broken. For the signature guitar, the pickups, circuits and controls have all been replaced with EMG pickups, a single volume control and a 3-way blade switch, allowing for powerful tones with simplistic control. The big chrome bridge has been replaced with a small startacaster string-though-body bridge, and the fingerboard inlays have been removed to leave a smooth ebony look.

Active EMG Pickups

The Fender Jim Root Jazzmaster uses a set of powerful EMG 81 and 60 humbucking pickups, offering a punchy and thick tone when in the 81 bridge position and a warm and crisp tone in the 60 neck position. Constructed from close aperture coils and featuring ceramic magnets, the 81 and 60 humbucking pickups provide advanced detail and a truly meaty tone. EMG pickups are favoured by many professional musicians due to their unbeatable tone, active circuitry, high output and low noise.

String-Thru Body

featuring a string-thru body construction, the guitar provides improved tonality and sustain by transferring vibrations and resonance from the string to the body as it goes over the hardtail bridge and passes through the body.

Compound Radius Neck

The Jazzmaster features Fender's unique and innovative compound-radius fingerboard design, where the board gradually flattens toward the heel from its more rounded profile, providing a smooth playability for both chords and riffs. The flattened heel allows sensational accessibility and speed at the high register, perfect for both lead and rhythm players.
