    Product Description

    Sire's T7 FM model takes the iconic T-style guitar formula to new sonic heights, with a potent dual-humbucker configuration. A continuation of their relationship with jazz fusion legend Larry Carlton, Sire's modern take on the traditional T-type keeps the legendary shape intact, but comes supercharged with several cutting-edge features in order to appeal to today's generation of performance-conscious players.

    Key appointments include a flamed Maple top, a rock-solid roasted Maple neck with a rolled-edge fingerboard, medium jumbo frets, locking tuners, a 2-point tremolo and highly-flexible electronics. Available at a fantastic price-point to boot, like all Sire instruments, the stunningly-crafted T7 FM electric guitar is a brilliant T-style alternative perfectly-suited for contemporary virtuosos.

    Classic T-Shaped Body

    While Sire's T7 FM 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 tone — the perfect tonal platform for the thick-sounding 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 FM 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 FM's neck is incredibly stable — vastly improving tuning stability.

    Powerful 'LC Super-M' Humbuckers

    Sire has equipped its gorgeous T-inspired model with a set of newly-designed 'LC Super-M' humbuckers. Delivering a rich and punchy sound, these pickups have plenty of output without being over-the-top — ensuring that your playing dynamics and technical nuances are heard for an expressive voice.

    A 5-way pickup lever switch allows you to attain various full-humbucking and split-coil combinations. This makes the T7 FM a highly-versatile guitar that's adaptable for most musical styles — from country and jazz, to classic rock and even metal!

    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 FM. Boasting a beautifully-machined 2-post tremolo, this bridge lets you tastefully add warble to chords or dramatically dive into notes, while the steel block and stainless saddles 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.

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "If I could give this more than five stars then I would . Puts some of the expensive USA guitars that I’ve owned to shame regarding attention to detail and finish . Might get another…."

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "I think this is probably my favourite guitar already, excellent build quality and finish, attention to detail is very good."

    Mr David Greatorex21st Mar 2022

    As far as 'bang for your buck' goes, you won't find better... Sire have got the right idea by focusing on making guitars that feel & sound great by spending the time & money on the bits that other manufacturers tend to overlook in favour of 'shelf appeal'. The neck & fretwork are as good, if not better than guitars at 4 times the price. The gloss finish on the fretboard feels incredible! Pickups sound great, not too brash without being weedy and the hardware is very decent... locking tuners are a really nice touch at this price point! If I was being REALLY picky, the finish on the body could be tidier in a couple of spots, but we're talking stuff that most people really wouldn't even notice & I'm probably being unfair by judging this guitar against other instruments that are WAY more expensive! Put this guitar up against anything similar at the same price & the Sire comes out on top every time! If you're considering this (or any Sire guitar) but are still a bit unsure if the hype is real, believe me... it is. Buy one, like, now.

    I think this is probably my favourite guitar already, excellent build quality and finish, attention to detail is very good.If anything the neck is slightly too fat for me but this is a subjective observation and I've only played it a few times , I also changed the strings to a lighter gauge but again just personal preference , having said that it's a cracking guitar very pleased with it.

    Mr Kevin Palmer30th Jan 2022

    Incredible neck and fretwork is the best I have encountered. No protruding bridge grub screws (Squier and Fender take note) to tear your hand to shreds. I wish these Sires were available years ago before I bought my Classic Vibe Strats and Teles Incredible guitars at any price. Got to save up for a 335alike now. Can't leave a durability feedback as only a week old. (the guitar)
