SIRE Marcus Miller | 2nd Gen | V9 NT | 4 St Bass | Swamp Ash Maple | W/ Gig Bag
This is 2nd Generation SIRE Bass - Upgraded Features are listed HERE
The Sire Marcus Miller V9 is a classic J-style bass with some modern flare, and this Version 2 model adds some refinements such as an improved neck and redesigned pickups.
Body and Neck
This V9 has a swamp ash body which results in a lightweight, comfortable bass with a balanced tone. Swamp ash is great for any playing style and won’t take a toll on your back when you’re gigging! This swamp ash body is finished off with a stunning quilted maple veneer for a more modern take on the classic J-bass look.
Sire have made a few changes to the neck of the version 2 V9s to make it more playable. The fingerboard now has rolled edges for added comfort, as well as a 9.5-inch radius and medium-sized frets which makes playing individual notes and melodies a little bit easier. The back of the neck now has a satin finish which feels great in the hand and helps you to move smoothly up and down the neck with ease.
Heavy Mass Bridge
The heavy mass bridge sets this bass apart from a more traditional J-bass. Designed and built at the request of the man himself, Marcus Miller, the heavy mass bridge provides a richer and punchier tone with more sustain that’ll suit any style you’re playing.
Re-designed Pickups, Same Impressive Preamp
The V9 Version 2 features new and improved Marcus Miller Super-J Revolution pickups. These pickups have been completely re-designed for a clearer, higher resolution sound. These pickups, in combination with Sire's much-praised active preamp, result in an articulate, open-sounding bass.
Sire Marcus Miller basses have become famous for their impressive preamps, and for good reason! Featuring a 3-band on-board EQ and a switch allowing you to choose active or classic passive sounds the Sire Marcus Miller preamp gives you complete tonal control.
