EMG’s Instagram page has put up a photo of the new Fender Jim Root Signature model ahead of any official announcement by Fender!
EMG ‘leak’ Fender Jim Root Signature Jazzmaster
This new Fender Jazzmaster comes loaded with a pair of Jim Root Signature EMG humbuckers (surprise, surprise) .
It looks similar to the previous jet black stripped-back signature model Jazzmaster from a few years back. However, it is now white, has block neck markers and a smaller headstock than that stealth black one.
The previous black signature mod had a set of active EMG 60/81 pickups. This new model looks like it will have something more like a pair of the Retro Active models, but with Mr Root’s own personalized version, thus making them a signature set.
If the #namm2020 is anything to go by, then we may have to wait until January to see this new signature model getting an official release, though.
RRP – TBC
