All the versions of this article: [Deutsch] [English] [français]

Guitarist Jim Root shreds in Slipknot and Stone Sour, and he collaborated with Fender® on a huge-sounding signature Telecaster® guitar that complements his heavy playing style. The Jim Root Telecaster features a mahogany body, maple neck with 12”-radius maple or ebony fretboard with jumbo frets, active EMG® pickups, string-through-body hard-tail bridge, black hardware and flat finish options.

The Jim Root electric guitar is a truly modern Fender Tele built for big sounds! As lead guitarist for Slipknot and Stone Sour, Jim Root is one of today’s leading heavy guitarists. This Telecaster guitar from the Artist Series was a labor of love for both Jim and Fender, combining several unique features to give it an identity all its own.
