Product Description

Sire have made serious waves in the bass market in recent years and have rightfully earned massive praise for their all-encompassing range. Their collaboration with world-renowned jazz and funk bassist Marcus Miller has produced a range of exceptionally high-quality instruments that far exceed their price point.

We here at Andertons believe that Sire are the best bass brand we have seen in the last twenty years! That’s a bold statement for sure, but you know a product is good when all the staff own one! Unlike a lot of other guitar companies that outsource their work, Sire own the factory in which their basses are built. This means cheaper production and full control over the quality of the instruments from start to finish. It goes without saying that we QC check each and every Sire bass that comes through our doors, but we are always blown away by how little tweaking is required because they’re always set up so well from the factory!

The V8 is Sire's new flagship bass guitar model, packed with premium features that you would typically expect to see on more expensive models. Its versatility makes it a great option for an array of different techniques, genres and playing styles. At this price point, its build quality is unrivalled too. Sporting a familiar J-Bass body shape, the V8 boasts a Swamp Ash body, roasted Hard Rock Maple neck and an Edgeless™ Hard Rock Maple fingerboard for maximum comfort and playability. At the heart of the V8 is a set of Marcus Miller-approved Vintage Fat-J Revolution pickups with '70s spacing, delivering Marcus' signature punchy tones. The onboard Sire Heritage-3 preamp allows you to accurately shape your tone with both active and passive modes on hand. 

Key Features

  • Edgeless™ Fingerboard – Typically only found on high-end basses, rolled fingerboard edges enhance the overall comfort and playability of the neck and make it easier to play. What’s not to like?!
  • Marcus Miller Heritage-3 Preamp – An onboard 3-band EQ with active and passive settings puts plenty of tone tweaking options at your fingertips. 
  • Marcus Miller Super-J Revolution Pickups – This signature set of pickups is preferred by Marcus Miller himself, offering up a host of great bass tones for a range of playing styles and genres. The '70s spacing brings the pickups closer to the bridge; a key element of Marcus Miller's sound.
  • J-Bass Body – This iconic, tried and tested body shape is incredibly comfortable to play. Body contours allow the bass to sit comfortably against your body when playing either standing up or seated.
  • Marcus Miller Heavymass II Bridge – This all-brass bridge set up ensures optimal intonation and tuning stability, whilst maximising the transfer of sound energy to the pickups. It also allows for enhanced vibration and sustain, producing a clearer and punchier sound.
