Product Description

Sire has expanded its S Series electric guitar line-up with the affordable S3 SSS model, taking inspiration from the classic S-type design but with some thoughtful, modern enhancements. A Larry Carlton approved model, the S3 is constructed from tonewoods and features typically found on high-end instruments — making it one of the best bang-for-your-buck guitars you can buy!

Equipped with a flexible Sire Standard-ST pickup set, the Sire S3 also boasts a rock-solid Maple neck adorned with a luxurious rolled-edge Rosewood fingerboard and medium jumbo frets for ultra-smooth playability. Trust us, you won't find many guitars at this price-point that are as versatile or easy to play as the stellar S3!

Key Features

  • Mahogany Body — Delivers a deep and sustain-rich sound; giving the pickups a broader and more harmonically-exciting tone.
  • 'Edgeless' Rosewood Fingerboard — A silky material with a deliciously-dark grain; enhanced with rolled edges for comfortable, played-in feel. No sharp fret ends here!
  • Medium Jumbo Frets — Semi-large size offers great control under the fingers; enabling wide vibrato and pitch-perfect string bends.
  • Sire Standard-ST Pickup Set — The SSS configuration gives you a range of sparkling yet warm single-coil tones, making for an extremely well-rounded instrument. 5-position pickup selector switch yields 5 sounds in total.
  • Sire Standard Tremolo — Modern 2-post design provides a smooth tremolo arm action; letting you embellish chords or lead lines with natural, musical vibrato.
  • Bone Nut — Traditional, low-friction material minimises unwanted tuning slips.

It had great reviews for a budget strat copy. Great fretboard and trem. Good looking paint job. Pickups were as expected (a bit crude) but my plan was always to drop in some good ones that I already had . This I did straight away. Guitar was also in sale so I've got an absolute bargain.
