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.

Mr Jamie Duncan Jamie Duncan1st Nov 2023

The guitar is fantastic, very good build quality and lives up to all the great reviews that there are about it. Completely playable out of the box and the gloss fretboard is stunning to both look at and play. Saving up for the S7 now

"DC" Malcolm Currie25th Sep 2022

Heavier than I like, and three pieces of alder for the body instead of the two they advertise. The pickups don't sound great, but not bad. The edges of the fretboard are too rolled, as Danish Pete also thought.

Mr Reuven Abramovich16th Mar 2022

The guitar arrived with a faulty nut that had to be fixed. Other than that it was great. The neck is really fun. I love the rolled edges and the satin finish on the back of the neck. The fretwork is pretty good. The frets are beautifully crowned and rounded at the edges. The fret leveling is very good, although I did find some spots with minimal rocking of the straight edge. The neck is a chunky c-shape and the frets are pretty tall, so make sure you like that kind of playing experience before buying. The hardware and the electronics are very good. The locking tuners, bridge, knobs and switch feel of high quality. The pots are full sized and made in Korea. The wiring inside is neatly ******* and the wires used are the vintage style ones with cloth sleeve. I heard some people had issues with the output jack but I had none. I really liked the pickups. They sound better than the stock pickups on my American Standard Fender. I couldn't give 5 stars because of the faulty nut and the extra cash I had to pay for the nut fix.

Two guitars bought and returned with two different issues out of the box. I feel unlucky and disappointed because these guitars would appear to be excellent value for money if they are in the proper condition.
