Description

Stock Notice

The first shipment of this Sire Larry Carlton guitar has completely sold out. The speed at which they sold out has taken us all by surprise and unfortunately we are not likely to receive the next shipment of guitars until March 2021. Hopefully after that we’ll be able to keep a more steady stream of guitars arriving in the UK, but for now we apologise for the delay in getting more of these great guitars. Thanks for your patience.

Following up the superb bass collaboration with Marcus Miller, Sire have partnered with jazz fusion legend Larry Carlton to bring you their take on the vintage semi-hollow: the H7. Sire instruments boast high-end specs at tempting prices - and it’s business as usual with the H7, which features a rolled edge ebony fingerboard and Larry Carlton Vintage pickup set.

Construction

Great build quality is crucial to a semi-hollow and the H7 passes with flying colours. It's made using maple back and sides and a cool trans maple top, which helps produce a classically familiar resonance. 

Set in is a comfortable “C” shape mahogany neck, topped with that astounding rolled ebony fretboard. Without a doubt, it makes the guitar feel like it's worth four times the price. Embedded are medium jumbo frets to give the H7 an updated playing feel and they combine well with the flat 12 inch radius.

Hardware on the H7 is of an incredibly high standard. The diecast premium tuners keep the guitar as precise as can be, while at the other end the Tune-O-matic bridge retains accurate intonation.

Sound

Sire had to pull out all the stops to meet the lofty expectations of Mr. 335 himself. The Larry Carlton Vintage humbucker sets delivers incredibly smooth sustain, bucketloads of harmonics and brilliant clarity suited to blues, rock and jazz styles.
