The Squier Jim Root Telecaster is a hardcore metal-fest for fans of Stone Sour/Slipknot guitarist Jim Root. The black and white stark contrast is about as metal as it gets, yet the Telecaster body provides fluidity that moves metal forward from the novelty pointy edges of the '80s. This guitar really makes a big impact immediately, sonically as well as visually.
BEAUTY THAT IMPROVES TONE
The mahogany body on the Squier Jim Root Tele gives a nice, light playing experience and increases the thickness of the tone while reducing fatigue. The solid body construction has an ultimately great feel, but is also built to withstand the test of time.
Fitted to the body is a modern C-shaped neck designed to be both comfortable and fast. The neck shape facilitates riffs and solos, ideal for shredding. Topping the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets at your service. White pearloid dot inlays decorate the frets to guide you along with confidence.
VERSATILE TONE DELIVERY
The tone of the Squier Jim Root Telecaster is underpinned by the shred-friendly dual humbuckers, with their aggressive black coverings, which produce a high-ouput heavy sound that will add sustain and growl to your sound, and when paired with an equally thrashing amp will offer tones from aggressive blues to heavy thrash and beyond. As far as the controls go there is a 3-way blade pickup switch and volume knob, keeping your tone heavy and pure, letting your amp or pedals do the shaping.
The 6-saddle standard strings-through body bridge is a classic Telecaster feature and gives excellent sustain as well as getting the best out of the wood.
The Squier headstock is also fitted with incredibly reliable die-cast tuning machines. All hardware on this slick guitar comes in black, from the tuners to the pickguard, bridge and even the pickups.
