The S7 combines both modern design construction with familiarly classy style. It's made of a premium alder wood with a bolt-on roasted hard maple neck. Sire are masters of the roasting technique, otherwise known as baking, which rids the wood of imperfections and makes it incredibly resilient over years of use.

On top is a matching 9.5 inch radius roasted maple fretboard embedded with medium jumbo frets, giving the S7 a smooth contemporary playing feel. Add in the gloriously silky rolled fretboard edges and you've got a guitar that plays like it should be four times the price. 

Hardware on the S7 is of an incredibly high standard. The premium locking tuners keep the guitar as precise as can be, even when using the Modern tremolo bridge for flutters and big divebombs.

Sound

Sire created the Super-ST pickup set to meet Larry Calton's high tonal standards. They deliver on outstanding clarity and treble-heavy sparkle. The H/S/S configuration is arguably the most versatile of pickup layouts. That means the Sire S7 can access dynamic cleans and lead tones at the neck and crunchy rhythm in the bridge position. Mix in the middle single coil to get nuanced, characterful variations.

The L7 is built in close likeness to the classic single cut and it shows in wood selection. It's made using a solid mahogany body and neck combo with a stunning maple top. The set neck joint and “C” shape neck work in tandem to provide excellent access to the upper frets and smooth transition across the ebony fretboard. 

Things get even better with the rolled edge fretboard edges, which make it feel like you're playing a guitar four times the price. Add in the medium jumbo frets and 12 inch radius, and you've got the best of both modern feel and old school style.

Hardware on the L7 is of an incredibly high standard. The premium locking tuners keep the L7 as precise as can be, even when throwing in big bends and heavy doses of vibrato. At the other end, you've got a trusty Sire-designed Modern Tune-O-Matic bridge for accurate intonation.
