Crushing Strat® Tone

For heavy, molten nu-metal Strat® style, the Jim Root Stratocaster delivers crushing detuned tone with a stark utilitarian look. The towering Slipknot guitarist joined us 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”), EMG® active humbucking pickups, sparse control layout and more. Brutal.

  • Mahogany body with sharp radius
  • Modern “C”-shaped neck profile and large headstock

  • Highlights

    EMG® Active Humbucking Pickups
    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.


    Compound-Radius Fingerboard
    Compound-Radius Fingerboard

    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).

    Locking Tuners
    Locking Tuners

    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.

    Ebony and Maple Fingerboards
    Ebony and Maple Fingerboards

    The Jim Root Stratocaster in Flat White features a traditional maple fingerboard with no inlays. The Flat Black model has a darkly alluring ebony fingerboard with no inlays.

    Satin Lacquer Finish
    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 color coat.

    Jumbo Frets
    Jumbo Frets

    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.
