Please Note: This listing currently shows images of a fretted version of the Sire P5 bass.

The P5 is a newly-designed Sire bass guitar, joining the acclaimed Marcus Miller lineup. Taking heavy inspiration from vintage precision-style instruments, Sire's utilitarian P5 model has plenty of classic character with its timeless body shape and solid construction — dishing out thumping low-end tones via a lone, middle-mounted split-coil pickup.

Further noteworthy appointments include a rock-solid roasted Maple neck, a fretless fingerboard, open-gear tuners and a genuine bone nut. Available at a fantastic price-point to boot, like all Sire instruments, the P5 is a versatile bass that perfectly blends traditional allure with modern refinement.

Balanced Alder Body

Sire's P5 model boasts a North American Alder body that guarantees a tight, neutral sound with bundles 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 P5 a practical stage or studio workhorse.

Roasted Maple Neck

Many high-end instruments come fitted with roasted Maple necks, yet Sire has somehow managed to fit its affordable P5 with one — providing you with a truly premium look. "Roasting" is a process that is 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 P5's neck is incredibly stable — vastly improving tuning stability.

Marcus Vintage-Precision Revolution Pickup

A proprietary 'Marcus Vintage-Precision Revolution' split-coil pickup gives the P5 a thick, rounded sonic character — capturing that legendary P-bass voice. Smooth and balanced, this surprisingly-flexible pickup rewards all playing styles with an inspiring tone that blossoms when amplified loud.

High-Quality Hardware

Hardware can be an afterthought for some guitar companies, but Sire has made sure that every detail is executed to perfection with its P5 bass. Sporting a beautifully-machined 'Vintage-S' bridge, this essential component 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.
