Jim Root Jazzmaster®, Ebony Fingerboard, Flat Black
What We Think
All the world greatest guitarists have been going to Fender and their custom shop for decades searching for their perfect instrument! As a result of years of creation you now have access to the entire artist catalogue of design and specification. All built to the same specification and by the same craftsman as the pro models!
Jimmy Page, Steve Ray Vaughan, Yngwie Malmsteen, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and many more are all available to purchase within the Custom shop artist series. The world’s most renowned workshop uses everything from hand selected woods with unique and gorgeous looks to hand wound pickups with custom electronics!
Stark, dark and menacing, the Jim Root Jazzmaster® guitar has got to be the most distinctively minimalist version of the instrument ever devised in the model euro;™s entire half-century history. At the behest of the towering Slipknot/Stone Sour guitarist, gone are the dual tone circuits and barrage of controls. Gone are the fret position markers and enormous chrome bridge. Gone, in fact, is pretty much everything typical of a Jazzmaster guitar, replaced only by fearsome EMG® 60 (neck) and 81 (bridge) humbucking pickups with brushed nickel covers, a single three-way switch, a single volume knob and a hardtail Stratocaster bridge.
The Jim Root Jazzmaster also features a mahogany body with a comfortable contoured neck heel, satin-finish maple neck with euro;œmodern C euro; profile and large headstock, compound-radius ebony fingerboard (12 euro;-16 euro;) with 22 jumbo frets and no position markers, staggered deluxe locking tuners, black hardware and pickup bezels, and an austere Flat Black satin-nitro lacquer finish. Includes black tweed case with red plush interior, strap and strap locks, cable and polishing cloth.
