Sire Larry Carlton H7 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar in Cherry Sunburst
Inspired by Carlton's classic doublecut semi-hollow, with pickups voiced to match!
"Quite aside from carrying the signature of one of the most respected session guitarists in history, these instruments are from the same stable as the Marcus Miller basses, whose sound-per-pound quality has made them something of a phenomenon in the four-string world." - guitar.com
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.
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 flamed 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.
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.
"One thing that’s already plenty beefy is the sound of Sire’s humbuckers. The neck unit is full and thumpy, a natural for shiny-shoed jazz, but the other two settings do an impressive job of keeping things full while dialling up the midrange snap.... give the H7 just a teaspoon of overdrive and it reveals itself to be a rich and gutsy solo machine." - guitar.com
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Fantastic guitar by any standards, and particularly at this price point. It really does look and feel like a much more expensive instrument."
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "It's just a really great quality guitar at any price, especially rolled binding on the neck which makes it extremely comfortable to play!"
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "The pickups were perfectly balanced, producing a variety of tones and with a modicum of overdrive they really sing. If anybody wants a 335 style guitar without breaking the bank, I thoroughly recommend"
