Squier Jim Root Telecaster
THE ROOT OF SQUIER TELECASTER TONE
Squier® brings you a brand-nu signature model—the crushing Squier Jim Root Telecaster®. Designed in cooperation with the acclaimed Slipknot/Stone Sour guitarist, it boasts several foreboding features, such as a black or white satin-matte finish, starkly simple control layout, two pulverizing passive humbucking pickups with black covers and blacked-out hardware, including tuning machines.
- Mahogany body
- Maple neck with “C”-shaped profile and 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with 12” radius
- Dual passive humbucking pickups with black covers
- Three-way pickup switch and single control knob (master volume)
- Strings-thru-bodyTelecaster bridge
- Black hardware
HUMBUCKING PICKUPS WITH BLACK COVERS
These humbucking pickups feature sleek black covers for a distinctive look.
In a pleasingly malevolent touch, the sparsely appointed Jim Root Tele features an all-black bridge, controls, bridge pickup bezel, tuners, strap buttons and more.
12″-RADIUS ROSEWOOD FINGERBOARD
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—great for bending notes without fretting out.
SATIN MATTE FINISH
The satin finish on this model is a smooth and stylish touch, offering a muted matte finish appearance versus the glassy sheen of conventional gloss finishes.
VINTAGE-STYLE HARDTAIL BRIDGE
This model features a hardtail bridge, rather than the classic tremolo, engineered for enhanced tuning stability and sustain. This design element also hearkens back to the early- to mid-’70s when hardtail guitars surged in popularity again.
MODERN NECK WITH “C”-SHAPED PROFILE
This instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary “C”-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) and a smooth back finish—ideal for those who play with the thumb on the back or side of the neck.
