    Product Description

    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 an alder body which gives it a well-rounded tone that'll complement any style you're playing and has a comfortable weight that won't hurt your back while gigging. This alder 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.

    History of Sire Marcus Miller Basses

    Sire guitars are the company that build the now famous Marcus Miller basses. Marcus Miller himself is a world-renowned jazz and funk bassist with some of the best bass chops on the planet. And he's worked with Sire instruments to make basses that are affordable but far exceed their price point in terms of feel, style and above all, sound.

    How do they do this? Unlike a lot of other guitar companies that outsource their work, Sire own the factory where their basses are built. This means firstly that they can cut costs but secondly, have full control of the quality of instrument that comes out of the workshop. This allows them to oversee the entire process.

    And, Sire instruments are doing good in the world by taking a share of the corporations profits and giving back to society. They have founded schools in Cambodia and Laos and teaching music to children.
