The Fender Jim Root Stratocaster is the ultimate Superstrat.
The specs of this guitar can be found on DV247's website so there's no need to elaborate on the all the features, except to say that the combination of components used to put this instrument together amounts to an extremely playable guitar. It's a player's guitar, not a poser's guitar.

The compound radius fingerboard coupled with a low action makes it one of the best Fender necks available to play. The slab mahogany body is not the usual Fender contoured body - edges are sharper but this makes it look a meaner machine, coupled with the flat black finish and minimal controls gives it a stealth look that's ready for business, whether that involves playing Metal, Punk, Country or whatever genre and it sounds superb.
USA build quality is great but a word of warning the finish on the body is thinly applied therefore it is prone to chipping quickly. This finish is to Jim Root's requirements and it may be argued that DIY natural relicing is, perhaps, a more natural and personal solution to factory relicing.
Locking tuners and a fixed bridge gives stable tuning and so there is no need to upgrade or customise this machine. A smart grey tweed case with Fender guitar strap is included in the price.

It seems that Fender will soon discontinue producing this model - buy quickly while stock is still available.

The service received from DV247 was excellent and the item was quickly delivered.

An excellent guitar. Recognisably a Strat, but with modern appointments (compund radius fretboard, active pickups) and a good fixed bridge. Best of all is the flat nitro finish which just feels a lot nicely than the big, gloopy poly finishes most Fender guitars have. Only thing I'm not sold on is the case (I would have preferred one of the molded SKB flight cases as per the USA deluxe Strats). This is a signature guitar, but above all it's a versatile, well built and modern Strat - well worth trying out, even if you're not a Jim Root fan.
