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 with a rolled-edge fingerboard, medium-sized frets, 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.
A C-shaped neck profile gives both contemporary and old-school bassists an addictive feel, while the rolled fingerboard edges enhance playability for an extremely smooth fretting experience.
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.
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.
