I was aware that Jim Root has some other signature guitars, but I was unaware he had THIS black Jazzmaster as his Sig. guitar.

I found this virtually unplayed mint condition JR yesterday at a pawnshop, and because of the "STUPID CRAZY LOW" price, was obligated to buy it. (actually put it on lay away)

I appreciate Jim's talent as a guitar player, and I know that this Sig. guitar is a quality instrument built to his specs.
