Jim Root, guitarist with Slipknot and Stone Sour, needs a no-holds-barred, massive sound from his guitars, and who better to build the perfect guitar for him than Fender? Of course, this is no ordinary strat.
The Jim Root Stratocaster comes equipped with arguably the most widely revered shredding pickups - active EMGs - and that's all you need for Jim's huge sound! Two pickups, a selector switch and a volume control. Add black hardware, jumbo frets, and a compound profile neck for the perfect compromise between speed, comfort and accuracy, and you have the perfect modern metallers guitar - just as Jim Root himself ordered it!
