The Root of Crushing Tele® Tone

For heavy, molten nu-metal Tele® style, the Jim Root Telecaster delivers crushing detuned tone with a stark utilitarian look. The towering Slipknot guitarist worked with Fender to create a huge-sounding signature Telecaster model that complements his heavy playing style, and it's a beast—right down to its 12"-radius fingerboard, EMG® active humbucking pickups, sparse control layout and more. Brutal.

Features

  • Mahogany body
  • Flat Black and Flat White satin nitro-lacquer finishes
  • Ebony or maple 12”-radius fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets
  • EMG® 60 (neck) and 81 (bridge) active humbucking pickups
  • Single control knob (volume) and three-way pickup switch
  • Hardtail strings-thru-body bridge
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 Telecaster is produced by a fearsome pair of EMG® active humbucking pickups.

12" Fingerboard Radius
12" Fingerboard Radius

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, and is great for bending notes without fretting out.

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 Fingerboard
Ebony Fingerboard

The Jim Root Telecaster offers a darkly alluring ebony fingerboard for smooth performance and a touch of elegance.

Satin Lacquer Mahogany Body
Satin Lacquer Mahogany Body

This guitar’s strong and resonant mahogany body has a finish that combines the thin breathability of lacquer with the stylishly muted matte look of a satin color coat.

Black Hardware

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