    Product Description

    Sire Marcus Miller V7 basses sound better and play smoother than ever before in the 2nd Gen range.

    The flagship V7 has been kitted out with two advanced single coil pickups bearing a full set of EQ controls, allowing you to mould your perfect personalised tone. Other upgrades can be found made to the neck and fretboard for a new, premium feel.

    New features

    The focus of the upgrade has been to improve the overall sound quality and playing comfort of the V7. 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 V7 now features an extremely comfortable rolled edge fretboard, which you'd usually only find on high-end basses. 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.

    Its only cosmetic change is to the pickguard, which is also installed on five-string basses as well as four-string variants.

    Construction

    Sire like to mix and match woods. The V7 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.

    History of Sire Marcus Miller Basses

    Sire build the now-famous Marcus Miller basses. Marcus Miller is a world-renowned jazz and funk bassist with some of the best bass chops on the planet. He's worked with Sire instruments to make affordable basses - but far exceed their price point in terms of feel, style and above all, sound.

    How do they do this? Unlike a lot of other guitar companies that outsource their work, Sire own the factory where their basses are built. This means more efficient production and full control over the quality of instrument from start to finish.

    Sire instruments are doing the world a bit of good by taking a share of corporate profits and giving back to society. They founded schools in Cambodia and Laos to teach children’s music lessons.

    Miss Tracy Gilbert8th Jul 2020

    When I unboxed my new bass I just sat and admired it for ages! I will say it’s stunning especially with the glossy ebony fingerboard. The bass is incredibly well set up just out the box very low action with just enough relief on the neck. It’s moved about a bit which is to be expected but if anything it sounds a lot better than when it first arrived because there was a settling in period as it arrived with the strings loosened Off so there was a few rattles down near the top nut on the low B string and the E string. I haven’t had it set up at all because of lockdown however I’m relatively happy with the set up because I prefer an extremely low action anyway. I also like a slight buzz on the notes as long as they are resonating properly. I love the satin finish on the C the very comfortable C shaped neck and like I say the polished ebony fingerboard is beautiful! The machine heads are perfect and move smoothly. I love the bridge which gives you two options on whether the strings go through in the more traditional way or through the body which is the way they are now. The pickups wow! There’s so much to choose from. I love messin around with this bass! I’m hooked on these active pickups!!! It sounds good passive but as soon as you flick that switch it’s like the difference between an ordinary car and then you attach a rocket to it! Voooooom!!!! And there’s no going back after that I can assure you! This preamp is something else!!! It’s just the icing on the cake. I’m used to my old Warwick 5 string fretless bass it’s passive and all you have is a volume control pickup selecter and tone control and now I have all this?! So yes this was my early birthday present to self. I’m not telling you my age though. It’s my birthday this month and so yeah very happy lady!
