When investing in such an aggressive and mesmerising guitar, the pickups are one of the first things to investigate. The Fender Jim Root Stratocaster does not disappoint. With Active EMG humbuckers equipped at the bridge and neck, you can be sure to deliver a tone that has bite and an abundance of sheer power. The EMG 81 bridge pickup is punchy in tone, whilst also retaining the thickness needed for such an all-encompassing sound.
The neck EMG 60 humbucker offers a tone that is totally different, allowing you the freedom to create a unique sound. It is remarkably warm and crisp, perfect for focusing on those piercing notes or mellower sections of your music. Use the 3-way blade switch to choose between or mix these two tones for a sound that is distinctive to you. The humbuckers have been constructed from close aperture coils and utilise ceramic magnets for that full, meaty tone. Better still, they can be pushed to their full potential with no noise, meaning every note you play will shine with glorious definition.
The body of this guitar has been constructed in such a way that adds a tremendous amount of glistening tonal benefits. Crafted from mahogany, it provides a rich and resonant tone that begs the wondrous textures of sparkling harmonies. This depth of sound is picked up by the sharp and exhilarating humbuckers, resulting in an immersive, breathtaking sound that your audience won't be able to turn away from. Mahogany is also conveniently sturdy, a desired attribute for any metal guitarist wanting to absolutely thrash on stage without any inhibition.
A robust model like the Fender Jim Root Stratocaster can take it. If exceptional strength isn't enough, the string-thru design of the body promises to enhance your playing experience even more. Experience glorious sustain caused by the transfer of vibrations as the strings travel over the hardtail bridge and pass through the body. Every single note you play will be projected out into the room with immense force and is guaranteed to ring out with razor-sharp clarity.
Not only does this stunning guitar offer a wealth of tonal possibilities, but it also enables you to play with amazing ease and comfort. The compound radius design of the neck cleverly flattens the fretboard toward the heel, a vast difference to its rounded profile at the nut. This gives you excellent smooth playability further helped by the soft and fast ebony fretboard. The inclusion of a flattened heel then allows for astounding accessibility to the upper frets which can be difficult to reach with precision. Say goodbye to any buzzing notes or muddy harmonies, the heel design, along with the body's double cutaway, ensures you can play those higher notes without any impedance, so you can focus on your insane skill.
As well as offering that sought-after playability, promising to make your life on stage so much easier, the neck and fretboard are wonderfully strong and enrich every note you play. Built from maple, the neck can withstand any fiery gig, whilst the ebony fretboard is sturdy enough to handle any attack from your rapid fretting. The two of these tonewoods combined bring harmonic benefits that team beautifully with the mahogany body. Their focus on the mid to high frequencies results in a bright tone that has sparkling definition, a gorgeous accompaniment to the resonance that flows beneath. Look like a dark horse with the Fender Jim Root Stratocaster and sound incredible. It truly is a striking instrument.
