    Product Description

    Sire Marcus Miller V5 basses sound better and play smoother than ever as part of the 2nd Gen range! The classic J-style bass packs a whole lot of desirable old school character, but with a modern feel for today's player. As ever with Sire, the V5 is an extremely easy fit for almost every type of bassist thanks to its super comfortable neck and beautifully contoured body.

    New features

    The two main focuses of version 2 have been on improving the bass tone and the feel of the neck. Marcus Miller worked alongside Sire to redesign the pickups with stronger magnets and coils. They deliver even more clarity and dish out a deeper quality tone than before.

    A matte finish replaces the sticky gloss coat for a much smoother feel. The neck radius has also been flattened to a much more contemporary 9.5 inches. Alder body models also boast a sleek new roasted maple fretboard in place of rosewood.


    Sire specialise in roasted maple necks. This advanced baking process rids the wood of imperfections and leaves it with a much darker, luxurious tint. The rolled edge fretboards also come as standard and give the V5 the touch of a high-end instrument.


    J-style basses are ultra flexible in their usage and the V5 is no exception. Its Marcus Vintage-J Revolution set produces incredibly pronounced tones great for both fingerpicking and slapping. Legendary player Marcus Miller knows more than most about what makes a great bass tone, so you can trust his judgement here!

    Lots of hype over Sire equipment, but it is not hollow PR nonsense. Been looking for a good vintage type jazz bass and when I heard about the V5 I thought it may be just what I was looking for. Great build quality and and excellent array of vintage tones.
