The Root of Squier Telecaster Tone

Squier® brings you a brand-nu signature model—the crushing Squier Jim Root Telecaster®. Designed in cooperation with the acclaimed Slipknot/Stone Sour guitarist, it boasts several foreboding features, such as a black or white satin-matte finish, starkly simple control layout, two pulverizing passive humbucking pickups with black covers and blacked-out hardware, including tuning machines.

  • Maple neck with “C”-shaped profile and 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with 12” radius
  • Dual passive humbucking pickups with black covers
  • Three-way pickup switch and single control knob (master volume)

    HUMBUCKING PICKUPS WITH BLACK COVERS

    BLACK HARDWARE

    In a pleasingly malevolent touch, the sparsely appointed Jim Root Tele features an all-black bridge, controls, bridge pickup bezel, tuners, strap buttons and more.

    12"-RADIUS ROSEWOOD FINGERBOARD
    12"-RADIUS ROSEWOOD FINGERBOARD

    This instrument features a fingerboard radius (the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard) that, at 12", is substantially more flattened than both a vintage-style 7.25" radius and a modern 9.5" radius. Feels notably flat even though there’s still slight curvature—great for bending notes without fretting out.

    SATIN MATTE FINISH
    SATIN MATTE FINISH

    The satin finish on this model is a smooth and stylish touch, offering a muted matte finish appearance versus the glassy sheen of conventional gloss finishes.

    VINTAGE-STYLE HARDTAIL BRIDGE
    VINTAGE-STYLE HARDTAIL BRIDGE

    This model features a hardtail bridge, rather than the classic tremolo, engineered for enhanced tuning stability and sustain. This design element also hearkens back to the earyl- to mid-'70s when hardtail guitars surged in popularity again.

    MODERN NECK WITH "C"-SHAPED PROFILE
    MODERN NECK WITH "C"-SHAPED PROFILE

    This instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary "C"-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) and a smooth back finish—ideal for those who play with the thumb on the back or side of the neck.
