    Product Description

    The D5 is an original Sire bass guitar design, joining the acclaimed Marcus Miller lineup. Taking heavy inspiration from vintage '50s instruments, Sire's no-frills D5 model has plenty of old-school charm with its timeless T-shaped body and solid-body construction — pumping out classic low-end tones via a lone, middle-mounted single-coil pickup.

    Further noteworthy appointments include a rock-solid roasted Maple neck with a rolled-edge fingerboard, medium-sized frets, open-gear tuners, a genuine bone nut and brass bridge saddles. Available at a fantastic price-point to boot, like all Sire instruments, the D5 is an elegantly-crafted bass that perfectly blends traditional allure with modern refinement.

    Iconic T-Shaped Body

    Sire's D5 model boasts a North American Alder body that guarantees a tight, balanced sound with plenty of upper mid-range projection — serving as the perfect tonal foundation for the punchy pickup. A generous belly-cut allows the instrument to rest comfortably against you in standing or sitting positions, making the D5 a practical stage or studio workhorse.

    Roasted Maple Neck

    Many modern high-end instruments come equipped with roasted Maple necks, yet Sire has somehow managed to fit its affordable D5 with one — providing you with a truly premium look! "Roasting" is a process that's 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 D5's neck is incredibly stable — vastly improving tuning stability.

    Peerless Playability

    A C-shaped neck profile gives both contemporary and old-school bassists an addictive feel, while the rolled fingerboard edges enhance playability for an extremely smooth fretting experience.

    Marcus Vintage D-Bass Single-Coil Pickup

    A proprietary 'Marcus Vintage D-Bass' single-coil gives the D5 a bold and authoritative voice. Crisp and articulate without sacrificing low-end warmth, this surprisingly-versatile pickup rewards all playing styles with an inspiring and expressive tone that blossoms when amplified loud.

    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 D5 bass. Sporting a beautifully-machined 'Marcus Vintage D-Bass' bridge with brass saddles, this essential design boosts note resonance for a responsive feel and piano-like sustain. A set of Sire 'Premium Open-Gear' tuners put a contemporary spin on this classic-looking bass, engineered to reduce the likelihood of tuning slips.
