New Jim Root Signature Stratocaster
New for 2010!! The New Jim Root Signature Stratocaster
Both bands do much to showcase not only his masterful playing but also his ethereal side, which you don’t hear so much as feel.
"Cutting edge artist Jim Root splits his shred time between two bands: Slipknot and Stone Sour. He recently partnered Fender to develop a Strat to complement his varied and unique style of playing.
The Jim Root Signature Stratocaster features a compound radius neck (12”-14”) with no fretboard dots, active EMG pickups, black hardware, jumbo frets and satin laquer finishes. One look at this distinctive guitar and you know what it's built for - BIG sounds!"
A little bit about.....
Stone Sour is a three time Grammy Award-nominated American Hard rock band from Des Moines, Iowa. The band was founded by Corey Taylor, vocalist of Slipknot, and former drummer Joel Ekman. Early days Taylor's long time friend, Shawn Economaki, joined shortly after, and filled in as the bass player. The band had played clubs and bars with different guitarists - often filling the position for just one show. This time, Stone Sour recorded 2 demo tapes, in 1992 and 1994. Shortly after, in 1995, Jim Root - who is now also part of Slipknot with Taylor - joined the band
