I have recently purchased the Jim Root strat and I have to say, the thing throws down. It is a strat, yet the polar opposite of a strat. The EMGs give extremely high output, and the mahogany body, and ebony fretboard give it an extreme metal sound. I am so happy I bought this.

.I was happy with the tone and quality of the electronics, but the shoddy workmanship was unacceptable for an instrument of this price. I returned this guitar primarily because of the low quality fret dressing.
The features were as advertised-one volume, one tone, and a selector switch. The EMG pickups delivered a tight, articulate low end as expected because I have an ESP with similar wood and pickup configuration. The neck was thicker than I expected. It had the feel of a Strat that I owned in the mid 80's. The description in MF read that it came with a black tweed case with red plush interior, but it arrived with a tolex case. The discrepancy was not a serious issue, but I felt a little disappointed.
The volume pot had a continuous taper from silent to loud-the first one I have seen, despite owning Gibsons, Fenders, and ESPs. The controls had some resistance and seemed to be of good quality.

The finish, satin black, looked fragile and thin. Perhaps, it was supposed to look that way, but I didn't find it attractive.

The clincher for an immediate return was the fret job. All the frets on the treble side of the neck protruded from the neck. They felt ragged, sharp, and uncomfortable. I felt that the workmanship on this guitar was unacceptable for an instrument in this price range. If this instrument passed Fender's quality control, then Fender is in trouble. I have a MIC Squire that has much better workmanship than this USA instrument.
The low rating is based on shoddy workmanship.

.I was surprised at how nice and bright the pickups were and they were not too hot either which was also a pleasant surprise.I am not a metal player at all,having picked this guitar up cause I wanted some humbuckers for some of the harder songs my band does.I was surprised when it did blues and clean sounds so well too.Bonus cause it's so easy to play.I normally play an american special strat with texas specials.There is no annoying noise at high gain setings.Nice.
Overall I really like this guitar,just wish it has a nicer body profile;more rounded off and not sharp.
Mine has a maple neck and board which probably helps with the brightness.I prefer bright guitars so this one is great for me.The volume rolls off smoothly and allows me to play with no pedals if I choose to.I do not have any use for slipnknot,but bow my head to talent in any genre.

.So I have had this guitar for two years now, and while it is a fantastic guitar for the rock/ hard rock/ metal thing, it is not very useful for anything else. The craftsmanship is great, it is American, not Mexican, mine in particular is lightweight. If you try to keep you guitars pristine then do not get this guitar. The finish is very thin, and is prone to chipping fairly easily, which doesn't bother me, but if things like that bother you then look elsewhere. The EMG's are EMG's that's the tone that you'll get. The ebony fretboard is smooth and consistently black, and the action can be set quite low. Overall it is a very solid guitar, but if you want versatility look for a different guitar, but if you want a guitar with all these specs, just some different pickups then get some different pickups. The neck is not a thin as maybe people think, just a modern C so its thin enough for comfort and speed, but thick enough so it feels like their something there. But worth the cash.

.This is worth the money.
This is what a Les Paul should be: well balanced, jumbo fretted, smoooooth finger board. My constant complaint about Strats has never changed- too many controls that get in the way of strumming. This guitar addresses all of that with a single control: volume. The pickup gain is a monster. When I play with someone using a standard Strat I use a volume level of 5 to their 10. This guitar plays beautifully. Exceptional sustain, very light touch on the frets.
Solid build. My only complaint is the pick guard: since it's black it shows every scratch.
You can easily spend more on a lesser Strat. Bound to be collectible.
