SIRE Marcus Miller | 2nd Gen | V7 LPB | 5 St Bass | Swamp Ash Maple | W/ Gig Bag
This is 2nd Generation SIRE Bass - Upgraded Features are listed HERE
Sire Marcus Miller V7 basses sound better and play smoother than ever before in the 2nd Gen range.
The V7 is the flagship model for Sire guitars. The classic J bass styling features 2 advanced single coil pickups with a full EQ control, allowing you to mould your perfect sound. It's also extremely easy for a beginner to pick up and play thanks to the comfortable modern neck shape.
The focus of the upgrade has been to improve the sound and necks of the basses. Marcus Miller worked alongside Sire to redesign the pickups with stronger magnets and coils to deliver a cleaner and deeper tone.
Sire have overhauled the neck design. A matte finish replaces the sticky gloss coats for a smoother feel. Neck radius is extended to 9 ½” and new medium frets make for a quicker and more accurate playing experience. Alder body basses also boast a sleek new Ebony fretboard in the place of Rosewood.
The only other cosmetic change is the pickup guard, which is also installed on five-string basses as well as four string.
