    Product Description

    Sire's T7 model takes the iconic T-style guitar formula to new heights — both sonically and playability-wise. A continuation of their relationship with jazz fusion legend Larry Carlton, Sire's modern take on the traditional T-type keeps the legendary aesthetic intact, but comes supercharged with several contemporary features in order to appeal to today's generation of performance-conscious players.

    Key appointments include a rock-solid roasted Maple neck with a rolled-edge fingerboard, medium jumbo frets, locking tuners, brass bridge saddles and a highly-flexible pickup set. Available at a fantastic price-point to boot, like all Sire instruments, the stunningly-crafted T7 electric guitar is a brilliant T-style alternative that perfectly blends timeless vintage charm with cutting-edge modifications.

    Classic T-Shaped Body

    While Sire's T7 model departs quite heavily from the original T-type blueprint, it does pay homage to this seminal instrument with an orthodox Alder body that guarantees a tight, balanced sound — the perfect tonal platform for the pokey pickups.

    However, Sire has put its own spin on this recognisable body shape by adding a shallow contour at the back of the lower cutaway. This minor yet thoughtful construction tweak therefore enables easier access to the upper frets, so that there are less limits to your creativity!

    Roasted Maple Neck

    Many modern high-end instruments come fitted with roasted Maple necks, yet Sire has somehow managed to fit its affordable T7 with one — providing you with a truly premium look and feel. "Roasting" is a process that is used to remove all of the natural moisture retained by a tonewood, which ultimately darkens the material and makes it far less vulnerable to warping when exposed to varying climates. This means that the T7's neck is incredibly stable — vastly improving tuning stability.

    Proprietary 'LC Super-T' Pickups

    Sire has equipped its gorgeous T-inspired model with a set of newly-designed 'LC Super-T' single-coils. Delivering that unmistakable "twang", these pickups ensure that the distinctive voice of the definitive T-style remains — albeit with a slightly hotter, overwound quality that produces more output. This makes the T7 a tonal chameleon that's adaptable for most musical styles — from country and jazz, to indie-pop and even hard rock!

    High-Quality Hardware

    Hardware can be an afterthought for some guitar companies, but Sire has made sure that every detail is executed to perfection with its T7. Boasting a beautifully-machined box-style bridge, a signature feature among '50 and '60s T-types, the T7 also sports genuine brass saddles that enhance sustain and note resonance.

    A set of Sire 'Premium Locking' tuners significantly cut down string-changing time so that you have more freedom to play, with less winds required around their posts too — reducing the likelihood of tuning slips.

    This guitar is well constructed, looks very stylish and plays great. I have previously invested much more money on guitars with big names that have ultimately proved diappointing. In short, I'm very pleased because in my opinion, this is an excellent guitar!

    This more than lives up to the online reviews by Anderton's and others (notably the Guitaristas, who reviewed this very model and finish). I have never bought a guitar online before without trying out first but I have to say I am more than delighted with this guitar. It has hardware upgrades you would expect to find on a guitar three times the price. Set up was good, frets polished and crowned and the T7 was nearly in tune straight out of the box. The White finish with the tortie scratchplate is a stunner. Decent set of Ernie Balls on too. Plays like a dream with plenty of bridge pickup spank, (instant Wilko Johnson) and the neck pickup is tailor made for some jazzin'. I would not hesitate to recommend Sire to anyone thinking of getting one of their range. I honestly don't have a single quibble about this guitar and at this price it's a steal. Get yourself one!

    I had to return two as they both had problems with the top e and b strings resonating in the nut when playing open strings. I think this was due to a badly cut nut and the lack of string trees. The third one was ok until i changed the strings for 9's then the1,2,3,strings catch badly on the nut when doing string bends. Again i think it's due to a badly cut nut. Although the service was good from Andertones I can't face sending this one back as well so I'll get a local Luther to fix it. The cable socket was also lose (easy fix). The guitars look great, the neck feels amazing, quality components, sounds very good if a little bright. The build quality seems to be inconsistent. ( I've seen other reviewers say the same).
