Fender shared photos of the instrument on its Instagram account, and the Slipknot guitarist has also been spotted using the guitar live. Does that mean a production Fender Jim Root Black Paisley Jazzmaster is in the works?

We recently wrote about how Fender now offers Black Paisley as an option for the Acoustasonic Telecaster, so the finish definitely has a big fanbase. And of all the paisley finished models, that is one of my own personal favourites. So if Fender does choose to release these as a regular run, I have a feeling they will sell like hotcakes.

The guitarist has had a lot of variations of his signature model over the years. Currently his Fender Jim Root Jazzmaster model comes with EMG pickups. He also has a Black Paisley Stratocaster and Telecaster in his personal collection.

If Fender were to make it a regular production model, do you think it could be popular? Let us know in the comments section below.

    Honest question – is Jim Root to Fender what Slash is to Gibson?

      eat yr Ghost says:

      At this point, seems like it. Between him and John 5, for sure.

      I really like the look of this, and some of his other signature models have done interesting or unique things, so I’m in the “interested” column.

    Lesley says:

    He has always said that he likes to keep his models affordable and when asked the question he said he thought they would be too expensive for production
