The D5 is an original Sire bass guitar design, joining the acclaimed Marcus Miller lineup. Taking heavy inspiration from vintage '50s instruments, Sire's no-frills D5 model has plenty of old-school charm with its timeless T-shaped body and solid-body construction — pumping out classic low-end tones via a lone, middle-mounted single-coil pickup.
Further noteworthy appointments include a rock-solid roasted Maple neck, a fretless fingerboard with rolled edges, open-gear tuners, a genuine bone nut and brass bridge saddles. Available at a fantastic price-point to boot, like all Sire instruments, the D5 is an elegantly-crafted bass that perfectly blends traditional allure with modern refinement.
Iconic T-Shaped Body
Sire's D5 model boasts a North American Alder body that guarantees a tight, balanced sound with plenty of upper mid-range projection — serving as the perfect tonal foundation for the punchy pickup. A generous belly-cut allows the instrument to rest comfortably against you in standing or sitting positions, making the D5 a practical stage or studio workhorse.
Roasted Maple Neck
Many modern high-end instruments come equipped with roasted Maple necks, yet Sire has somehow managed to fit its affordable D5 with one — providing you with a truly premium look! "Roasting" is a process that's used to remove all of the natural moisture retained by a tonewood, which ultimately darkens the material and makes it far less vulnerable to warping when exposed to varying climates. This means that the D5's neck is incredibly stable — vastly improving tuning stability.
Marcus Vintage D-Bass Single-Coil Pickup
A proprietary 'Marcus Vintage D-Bass' single-coil gives the D5 a bold and authoritative voice. Crisp and articulate without sacrificing low-end warmth, this surprisingly-versatile pickup rewards all playing styles with an inspiring and expressive tone that blossoms when amplified loud.
Hardware can be an afterthought for some guitar companies, but Sire has made sure that every detail is executed to perfection with its D5 bass. Sporting a beautifully-machined 'Marcus Vintage D-Bass' bridge with brass saddles, this essential design boosts note resonance for a responsive feel and piano-like sustain. A set of Sire 'Premium Open-Gear' tuners put a contemporary spin on this classic-looking bass, engineered to reduce the likelihood of tuning slips.
