Product Description

Sire basses have become best-sellers worldwide, and for good reason! Collaboratively designed with bass virtuoso Marcus Miller, Sire instruments are acclaimed for their beauty, luxurious playability, impeccable build quality, premium features and relative affordability. Able to keep up with the demands of professional working musicians, Sire basses outclass almost anything in their price bracket!

The P8 is a kitted-out model from Sire's popular P Series. Equipped with Marcus Miller-approved hardware and electronics, including a sustain-enhancing Heavymass II bridge and Sire's sophisticated Heritage-3 preamp, the woods used for this instrument are also key to its high-end feel and tone — sporting a roasted Maple neck with a rolled-edge fingerboard, and a warm-sounding Swamp Ash body with a stunning natural grain.

Key Features

  • C-Shaped Roasted Maple Neck — Roasting process crystallises resins and removes all of the natural moisture retained by the neck wood, ultimately darkening the material and increasing stability for rock-solid tuning!
  • 'Edgeless' Rolled Fingerboard Edges — Enhances the overall comfort and playability of the neck and makes it easier to play. What's not to like?!
  • Marcus Super PJ Revolution Pickup Set — This flexible P/J configuration is a preferred option for Marcus Miller; offering up both crystal-clear and warm jazz bass tones.
  • Marcus Miller Heritage-3 Preamp — An onboard 3-band EQ with active and passive modes puts plenty of tone-tweaking options right at your fingertips!
  • Marcus Heavymass II Bridge — An all-brass bridge that yields incredible sustain; allowing more vibrations to resonate through the body for clearer, punchier sounds when recording or performing.
  • Included Sire Premium Gig Bag — A light yet robust gig bag that carefully protects the bass against knocks on the road! Includes shoulder straps for easy transportation.

About Sire Marcus Miller Basses

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!
