An Affordable Jim Root Tele

Squier collaborated with Slipknot's Jim Root to bring you the Jim Root Telecaster, and it's made for some seriously hard rocking! The solid mahogany body, maple neck, 12" radius rosewood fretboard, and jumbo frets make this Telecaster as unique as Jim Root's intimidating tone. A duo of covered passive humbuckers provide massive output and tone, perfect for high-gain guitar amplifiers. If you want an axe that gives you no-frills tonal aggression, you'll love playing the Squier Jim Root Telecaster.

Squier Jim Root Telecaster at a Glance:
  • Designed with Slipknot's iconic guitarist
  • Non-traditional mahogany body
  • Made for today's rock guitarist
Designed with Slipknot's iconic guitarist

Slipknot has been churning out some of the hardest-hitting metal riffs for over a decade, thanks in no small part to the untamed tone of guitarist Jim Root. While some metal guitarists still don't know that you can serve up sonic evisceration with a Telecaster, Jim Root knows better - the Jim Root Telecaster has the ultra-smooth playability that Teles are known for, with high-octane output provided by dual humbucking pickups.

Non-traditional mahogany body

While most Telecasters sport an alder body, Slipknot's Jim Root plays a mahogany model for its tighter low-end response and awesome sustain. The Squier Jim Root Telecaster holds true to his signature guitar, with a mahogany body that sets it apart from most Telecasters.

Made for today's rock guitarist

Hey, there's a reason the Telecaster has been one of the most popular guitars ever - Teles are tonally versatile and incredibly smooth to play. Jim Root's signature Tele takes this formula and tweaks it for metal, with high-output pickups and a 12" radius fretboard for effortless lead playing. Even if you're not trying to melt your fans' faces, you'll love the aggressive character of the Jim Root Telecaster.

Squier Jim Root Telecaster Features:
  • Signature Telecaster built in collaboration with Slipknot guitarist Jim Root
  • Hardtail string-through bridge enhances sustain
  • Covered passive humbucking pickups sport a hot output that's great with high-gain amps
  • Rosewood fretboard, with a 12" radius that's perfect for fast fretwork
  • Flat Black finish
