Ive been highly anticipating ordering a jim root telecaster. Ive read something about so bad wiring in it and its mexican. Have any of yall played one? If its not worth the $950, reccommend me something for hardrock and metal.

Bad wiring; that's probably hit and miss.

Mexican; Does it really make a difference if it was made a few more miles South? Get a good one and a Mexican Fender is as good if not better than most MIA Fender's.

As for it's tone, my technique flat-out fails on it's face on EMG's, so I've never played it, but I've heard other people play it, and when it's not some noob shredder who just switched from Guitar Hero or Rock Band, it sounded pretty good.

I wouldn't be worried about the bad wiring thing unless there are a lot of reported cases of it,every company makes a lemon once in a while.MIM fenders at that price are well built from what I've seen and played,so I agree with Necro,don't let that make you shy away from it.Your best option would be to find one at a store and test play it so you can make sure it feels and sounds good and doesn't have any gremlins in the system.

Bad wiring is would be quality control going really bad for most of them to have that problem, I wouldnt worry about it.
