Sire Version 2 Left Handed Marcus Miller M5 Swamp Ash 4 String In Trans Blue

Description

Sire basses have become best-sellers worldwide, and for good reason. Collaboratively designed with bass virtuoso Marcus Miller, Sire instruments are becoming acclaimed for their beauty, luxurious playability, impeccable build quality, premium features and relative affordability. Able to keep up with the demands of professional working musicians, Sire basses outclass almost anything in their price bracket.

The M Series is one of Sire's most popular bass models, distinctive for its ultra-modern shape and forward-thinking features. The M5 sits in the middle of the M Series, giving you a pro-grade instrument but at an attainable price. Boasting a raft of best-in-class hardware and electronic appointments, the woods used for this instrument are also key to its high-end feel and sound; not to mention its stunning aesthetics!

Modern Construction

The foundation of the Sire M5 bass is its Swamp Ash body. Used on some of the earliest electric guitars and basses on the market, you can expect a fairly neutral tone with slightly accentuated upper mids and noticeable low-end warmth. The M5's tonal response is therefore very balanced and able to sit perfectly in any live or studio mix.

The M5's C-shaped neck is made from 5 pieces of wood, predominantly Maple. This layered design increases stability and makes the neck far less susceptible to warping, which is especially important for a 5-string bass that has so much string tension. Thanks to the largely Maple neck and smooth Ebony fingerboard, you can expect crisp and immediate tones with plenty of sustain to boot.

Powerful Pickups

Sire basses are known for emitting sounds that far outweigh their modest price-points, and the M5 is no exception. Marcus Pure Humbucker Advanced active pickups deliver a thick and powerful sound, projecting plenty of low-end, a meaty mid-range and articulate highs.

Want to go for more of a traditional, passive pickup sound? No problem, just use the toggle switch to flick between active and passive modes, and use the two additional switches to engage/disengage the front and rear pickups.

Flexible Preamp

Couple the versatile humbucking pickups with Sire’s incredible Heritage-3 preamp system, and you’ve got unprecedented control over your sound. This includes a sweepable middle frequency control for finding the instrument's tonal sweet-spot, akin to the flexible EQ you'd find on a high-end mixing console! But even with this sophisticated built-in preamp, the M5’s core sound is unmistakably clear and aggressive.

High-End Hardware

Additional appointments include Sire’s Premium Open Gear tuners and their popular Heavy Mass Standard bridge. The latter is based on Miller’s favoured jazz-style bridge, and its extra-chunky saddles offer a rich tone with excellent tuning accuracy, sustain and strength.
