The Fender Jim Root Stratocaster incorporates a set of powerful EMG 81 and 60 humbucking pickups which provide a punchy and thick tonality 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.
Incorporating a string-thru body construction the Jim Root Stratocaster 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.
The Jim Root Stratocaster features Fender's unique and innovative compound-radius fretboard design, in which the fretboard gradually flattens toward the heel from its more rounded profile at the nut providing a smooth playability for both chords and riffs. The flattened heel allows sensational accessibility and speedy at the high register perfect for both lead and rhythm players.
