The towering Slipknot guitarist joined Fender in creating a huge-sounding signature Strat model that complements his heavy playing style, and it's a monster—right down to its compound-radius fingerboard (12 to 16 inch), EMG® active humbucking pickups, sparse control layout and more. Brutal.
EMG® Active Humbucking Pickups
For a decidedly non-traditional design and configuration, the crushing nu-metal sound of the Jim Root Stratocaster is produced by a fearsome pair of EMG® active humbucking pickups.
This instrument features a compound-radius fingerboard, a sophisticated and carefully crafted feature in which the fingerboard has a more pronounced curvature across its width near the nut (ideal for chording) and gradually flattens to a very slight curvature toward the upper frets (perfect for bending notes and soloing).
A convenient high-end, high-performance feature, locking tuners offer increased tuning stability, especially on tremolo-equipped guitars, and they make changing strings substantially faster and easier than conventional tuners.
The Flat Black model has a darkly alluring ebony fingerboard with no inlays.
Satin Lacquer Finish
The finish on this instrument combines the resonance and thin breathability of lacquer with the stylishly muted matte look of a satin colour coat.
The largest of the fret sizes, jumbo frets are tall and wide, which lets you get a better grip on the strings, enabling more control over them and making bends and vibrato easier. A good choice for players with larger hands and thicker fingers.
