The Sire Marcus Miller P7 is the ultimate versatile, vintage-style bass and this Version 2 model improves on that winning formula. The P7 is essentially a P-bass with an added Jazz bridge pickup giving you the best of both worlds in one instrument.

Two new V2 Updated additions

The P7 Updated model features two major upgrades: sleek aluminium dials replace the previous model's plastic knobs, and square block saddles have been upgraded to more comfortable round block saddles.

New features

The focus of the upgrade has been to improve the overall sound quality and playing comfort of the P7. Marcus Miller worked alongside Sire to redesign the pickups with stronger magnets and coils to deliver a cleaner, deeper tonal palette.

Sire have also overhauled the neck design. The P7 now features an extremely comfortable rolled edge fretboard, which you'd usually only find on high-end basses. The neck radius has been extended to 9.5-inches and fretted models are adorned with new medium frets, making for a quicker and more accurate playing experience. The gloss neck coating has been replaced with a much classier satin finish.

Construction

Sire like to mix and match woods. The P7 is made of either a well-balanced alder or a slightly brighter swamp ash body. A hard maple neck offers excellent stability and is topped by either a maple or ebony fingerboard.

Electronic Blend

The Marcus Miller Super-PJ Revolution set of pickups offer further sonic intrigue. The upgraded jazz bass pickups allow for a blend of vintage jazz bass sound and the unique precision bass tone. This sound is then improved via the Marcus Miller Heritage-3 preamp, leading to great versatility and a full, clear overall tone.
