FLAT WHITE - MODEL #: 0114545705

The Artist series puts the essence of true musical collaboration in the hands of players and fans, with instruments that bear the names of the world’s most influential guitarists and bassists.
CRUSHING STRAT® TONE
For heavy, molten nu-metal Strat style, the Jim Root Stratocaster delivers crushing de-tuned 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.
Mahogany body with sharp radius
Modern “C” neck profile and large headstock
Ebony or maple compound-radius fingerboard (12” to 16”) with 22 jumbo frets and no position inlays (side-dot inlays only)
EMG® 60 (neck) and 81 (bridge) active humbucking pickups
Single control knob (volume) and three-way pickup switch
Hard-tail string-through-body bridge
EMG® ACTIVE HUMBUCKING PICKUPS
For a decidedly non-traditional design and configuration, the crushing nu-metal sound of the Jim Root Stratocaster is produced by a fearsome pair of EMG® active humbucking pickups.
This instrument features a compound-radius fingerboard, a sophisticated and carefully crafted feature in which the fingerboard has a more pronounced curvature across its width near the nut (ideal for chording) and gradually flattens to a very slight curvature toward the upper frets (perfect for bending notes and soloing).
A convenient high-end, high-performance feature, locking tuners offer increased tuning stability, especially on tremolo-equipped guitars, and they make changing strings substantially faster and easier than conventional tuners.
EBONY AND MAPLE FINGERBOARDS
The Jim Root Stratocaster in Flat White features a traditional maple fingerboard with no inlays. The Flat Black model has a darkly alluring ebony fingerboard with no inlays.
SATIN LACQUER FINISH
The finish on this instrument combines the resonance and thin breathability of lacquer with the stylishly muted matte look of a satin color coat.
The largest of the fret sizes, jumbo frets are tall and wide, which lets you get a better grip on the strings, enabling more control over them and making bends and vibrato easier. A good choice for players with larger hands and thicker fingers.
