For heavy, molten nu-metal Strat® style, the Jim Root Stratocaster delivers crushing detuned tone with a stark utilitarian look. The towering Slipknot guitarist joined us in creating a huge-sounding signature Strat model that complements his heavy playing style, and it’s a monster—right down to its compound-radius fingerboard (12” to 16”), EMG® active humbucking pickups, sparse control layout and more. Brutal.
