Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this Fender Jim Root Stratocaster! The video below will give you the skinny on just how low you can set the action on this terrifyingly fast guitar so we'll just tell you that, from a player's perspective, this is the kind of guitar that inspires you to do more. The speed and accuracy of this Strat let the player achieve things they didn't think they had in their bag of tricks. It's one of those axes that brings your playing to the next level. Our hats are off to both Jim Root and Fender for bringing this bombshell of a Strat into the market. Prepare to rip!

Item Details

This Fender Signature Jim Root Stratocaster is finished in Flat White. This guitar features a mahogany body which no doubt helps to round out and warm up the tone of the mids on this beast. Coupled with a maple neck and fretboard and a set of active EMG pickups, that mahogany body is the secret ingredient to getting all of the tonal variables to work together so well. Other gnarly features include black hardware, large headstock, master volume control, jumbo frets and a compound radius of 12"-16" for maximum shredability. This guitar comes with a molded SKB hard shell case.

Guitarist Jim Root shreds in Slipknot and Stone Sour, and he collaborated with Fender on a huge-sounding signature Stratocaster guitar that complements his heavy playing style. The Jim Root Stratocaster features a compound radius neck (12-16") without fretboard dot markers, active EMG pickups, black hardware, jumbo frets and satin finish.
