    Product Description

    Sire Marcus Miller V7 basses sound better and play smoother than ever before in the 2nd Gen range. This Vintage version has an old school F-style bridge with saddles that can be individually adjusted for the best intonation. 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.

    Version 2 Updated

    This 'Version 2 Updated' model gets a needed redesign; the square block saddles have been switched out for rounded block saddles. This means enhanced playing comfort, especially when muting or using a pick!

    New Features

    The focus of the upgrade has been to improve the sound of the Vintage. Marcus Miller worked alongside Sire to redesign the pickups with stronger magnets and coils to deliver a cleaner and deeper tone. You'll hear a big difference in the sound balance when comparing version two and the original. The pickups will also feature a printed logo.  

    One other cosmetic change is the pickguard, which is also installed on five-string basses as well as four string.

    Body and Neck

    The V7 Vintage has either an Alder body that adds darker tones and warmth, or a Swamp Ash body which is known for its brightness. A Hard Maple neck offers excellent stability and is topped by a Maple fingerboard. This provides your tone with crisp higher frequencies.

    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 cheaper production and full control over the quality of instrument from start to finish.

    Sire instruments are doing the world a bit of good by taking a share of the corporate profits and giving back to society. They founded schools in Cambodia and Laos to teach children’s music lessons.

    Here's what Sire say about the Marcus Miller V7 Vintage:

    The Sire preamp is a perfect example representing our technology and philosophy integrated into our instruments. With multiple tone controls, you have total command in finding and getting the sound you want. The use of 18v battery enables the player to attain unaltered natural sound with a strong and powerful output. With 3 band EQ, the player can have versatility in sound that can be suited for all occasions of music sessions. All models come with the option of active and passive settings. Even in the passive mode, volume, tone, pickup balancer is fully functional, giving the player more controls for the tone in any mode.

    Jazz Bass Type

    Jazz bass type is the industry standard bass model with its signature vintage sound. This is an all-round bass that is suitable for fingering, slap and all techniques and style of playing. With both classic and modern feel and design, this new bass can produce the desired sound for any genres of music from funk to metal.

    One Piece Hard Maple Neck

    The neck is made with one-piece Canadian hard maple. With its strength, it decreases movement and stabilizes the neck to maintain the original shape and condition. The neck minimizes the loss of vibration and maximizes the tone-sustain.
