    So, here is my Jim Root tele for sale. It has been heavily modded. Again, the only reason i am letting this go is to fund a bass i just purchased. This guitar is awesome!

    Here are the mods that have been done:

    Professionally clear coated so the color will not fade like on other Jim Root guitars.
    Fretboard “ebonized” with stew Mac black India ink. This makes the fretboard dark like ebony.
    Moved the volume pot (so not in the way of playing)
    New 3 way switch installed
    New output jack
    New volume pot
    Iron Age kill-switch button installed in the old volume pot location(currently not wired up)
    Hipshot locking tuners installed
    Passive EMG H4 bridge and neck pickups install (can include original pickups, I just need to locate them)
    Comes with a Fender gig bag/might be able to include a hard case however.

    If picked up locally I can sell it for $500 with the gig bag.
    If shipped I'd like to get $600 and the guitar will come with a hard case.

    Location is Pensacola, FL

    Heh...just seen this. I’m local but already have a Jim Root..same color even lol
    If you don’t get any bites you might be able to get Blues Angel Music to take it on consignment.
    Tringas used to but they closed down last year.
