So just returned from Gig Gear in Harlow to pick up my brand new guitar.



What could it be?



Well it's a Fender of some sort.



A White shape emerges



Wait, Locking tuners? This isn't normal for a Fender?



EMG's? Something is definitely wrong here.



It's a MIM Fender Jim Root Signiture Telecaster. Plays like a dream. Mahogany Body, Maple Neck, Ebony Fret Board, EMG 81/60 set. Schaller Locking Tuners and Schaller Strap locks as standard. Nitro finish to let it breath. It's basically a Gibson as made by Fender... apart from most Gibson's don't come with Active Pups and strap locks.

Very fast player, great sounding bit of wood and far more versatile than I honesty expected it to be. Bought it for playing metal but it seems like it can do more than that if put through the clean channel on a decent amp. Especially in the centre position.
All I want is for everyone to go to hell...
...It's the last place I was seen before I lost myself

Another factor that has grown this myth is a bunch of opinionated guys who really don't know what they're talking about, which to be brutally honest is a bunch of you guys on here.

Yup, for £756 it's not gonna be a MIA, and I'm pretty sure it says MIM on the head stock, but it's in the case now and it's too late for me to go break it out

Honestly all the Schecters I've played have not felt nearly as good as this guitar.

Nice purchase. I really want one, the only non-American Deluxe Tele with the contoured heel and I like the position of the selector switch.
#25
I don't like Jim Roots and I don't like signature models, but I'd buy the shit out of his, they're real nice guitars! HNGD!
#26
I've always wanted to play one of those, but I've never had the opportunity. Glad to see that it's a great guitar! HNGD!
