HIGHLIGHTS
  • EVERTUNE BRIDGE

    EverTune F model bridge installed in-house by EverTune. Unwavering tuning stability and improved intonation. meticulously quality controlled and set up to provide perfect playability right out of the box.

  • EMG® Active Humbucking Pickups

    For a decidedly non-traditional design and configuration, the crushing sound of the Jim Root Telecaster is produced by a pair of EMG® 60 (neck) and 81 (bridge) active humbucking pickups.

  • 12" Fingerboard Radius

    Substantially more flattened than both a vintage-style 7.25" radius and a modern 9.5" radius, this fingerboard radius feels notably flat even though there’s still slight curvature. Great for bending notes without fretting out.

  • LOCKING TUNERS

    A convenient high-end, high-performance feature, locking tuners offer increased stability, and they make changing strings substantially faster and easier than conventional tuners.

  • EBONY FINGERBOARD

    The Jim Root Telecaster offers a darkly alluring ebony fingerboard for smooth performance and a touch of elegance.

  • 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.
