Jim Root has confirmed he is working with Charvel on a new signature guitar.

The guitarist shared the news on Instagram, posting multiple close-up pictures of the typically Root-esque stripped-back San Dimas – as well as one with Slipknot production coordinator Simon Robinson, who by their exchanges looks to have helped design the guitar – adding that the model is “coming soon”.
