Typically we see Jazzmasters on stage with indie rocks greats My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth, and Dinosaur Jr. It is not to common to see them gracing heavy metal stages worldwide but Jim Root of Slipknot and Fender have teamed up to give us a sleek, stripped down and robust version of a classic design. This guitar is packed with an EMG 81 in the bridge and 60 in the neck, and C profile neck and ebony board. The bridge is a hardtail found common on a Strat and ditching the vibrato typically found on Jazzmasters. The tone is very fender but bleeding into Les Paul territory with its pairing of a thick Mahogany body and ebony board. This guitar is very limited and in high demand not only with Sam Ash but everywhere! get them while we still have them!
