Description

Stock Notice

The first shipment of this Sire Larry Carlton guitar has completely sold out. The speed at which they sold out has taken us all by surprise and unfortunately we are not likely to receive the next shipment of guitars until March 2021. Hopefully after that we’ll be able to keep a more steady stream of guitars arriving in the UK, but for now we apologise for the delay in getting more of these great guitars. Thanks for your patience.

Following up the superb bass collaboration with Marcus Miller, Sire have partnered with jazz fusion legend Larry Carlton to bring you their take on the iconic S-style: the S7. Sire instruments boast high-end specs at tempting prices - and it’s business as usual with the S7, which features a roasted maple neck, a rolled edge fretboard and Super-ST pickups suited to Larry Carlton's tonal preferences.

Construction

The S7 combines both modern design construction with familiarly classy style. It's made of a premium alder wood with a bolt-on roasted hard maple neck. Sire are masters of the roasting technique, otherwise known as baking, which rids the wood of imperfections and makes it incredibly resilient over years of use.

On top is a matching 9.5 inch radius roasted maple fretboard embedded with medium jumbo frets, giving the S7 a smooth contemporary playing feel. Add in the gloriously silky rolled fretboard edges and you've got a guitar that plays like it should be four times the price.

Hardware on the S7 is of an incredibly high standard. The premium locking tuners keep the guitar as precise as can be, even when using the Modern tremolo bridge for flutters and big divebombs.

Sound

Sire created the Super-ST pickup set to meet Larry Calton's high tonal standards. They deliver on outstanding clarity and treble-heavy sparkle. The H/S/S configuration is arguably the most versatile of pickup layouts. That means the Sire S7 can access dynamic cleans and lead tones at the neck and crunchy rhythm in the bridge position. Mix in the middle single coil to get nuanced, characterful variations.
