FLAT BLACK - MODEL #: 0134444706

The Artist series puts the essence of true musical collaboration in the hands of players and fans, with instruments that bear the names of the world’s most influential guitarists and bassists
THE ROOT OF CRUSHING TELE® TONE
For heavy, molten nu-metal Tele style, the Jim Root Telecaster delivers crushing de-tuned tone with a stark utilitarian look. The towering Slipknot guitarist worked with Fender to create a huge-sounding signature Telecaster model that complements his heavy playing style, and it’s a beast—right down to its 12”-radius fingerboard, EMG® active humbucking pickups, sparse control layout and more. Brutal.
Flat Black and Flat White satin nitro-lacquer finishes
Ebony or maple 12”-radius fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets
EMG® 60 (neck) and 81 (bridge) active humbucking pickups
Single control knob (volume) and three-way pickup switch
Hard-tail string-through-body bridge
EMG® ACTIVE HUMBUCKING PICKUPS
For a decidedly non-traditional design and configuration, the crushing nu-metal sound of the Jim Root Telecaster is produced by a fearsome pair of EMG® active humbucking pickups.
12” FINGERBOARD RADIUS
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, and is great for bending notes without fretting out.
A convenient high-end, high-performance feature, locking tuners offer increased tuning stability, especially on tremolo-equipped guitars, and they make changing strings substantially faster and easier than conventional tuners.
EBONY AND MAPLE FINGERBOARDS
The Jim Root Stratocaster in Flat White features a traditional maple fingerboard with no inlays. The Flat Black model has a darkly alluring ebony fingerboard with no inlays.
SATIN LACQUER MAHOGANY BODY
This guitar’s strong and resonant mahogany body has a finish that combines the thin breathability of lacquer with the stylishly muted matte look of a satin color coat.
In a pleasingly malevolent touch, the sparsely appointed Jim Root Telecaster features an all-black bridge, controls, bridge pickup bezel, tuners, strap buttons and more.
