    Product Description

    "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 on the superb bass collaboration with Marcus Miller, Sire have partnered with jazz fusion legend Larry Carlton to bring you their take on the iconic S-style: the S7 Vintage. Sire instruments boast high-end specs at tempting prices - and it’s business as usual with the S7, which features a roasted maple neck, a rolled edge fretboard and a traditional single coil pickup set suited to Larry Carlton's tonal preferences.

    The S7 Vintage blends modern design construction with familiar retro style. It's made of a premium alder body wood and bolt-on roasted hard maple neck. Sire are masters of the roasting technique, otherwise known as baking, which rids the wood of imperfections and makes it incredibly resilient over years of use.

    On top is a matching 9.5 inch radius roasted maple fretboard embedded with medium jumbo frets, giving the S7 Vintage a smooth contemporary playing feel. Add in the gloriously silky rolled fretboard edges and you've got a guitar that plays like it should be four times the price.

    "The satin neck finish feels great, the rolled fretboard edges really do make a difference, and the vibrato system has been well set up with a natural response and decent tuning stability." - guitar.com

    Hardware on the S7 Vintage is of an incredibly high standard. The premium locking tuners keep the guitar as precise as can be, even when using the old school S7V tremolo bridge to its fullest extent.


    Sire's in-house-made Super-V single coil pickup sets meets Larry Carlton's high sonic standards of crisp character and sparkle. You simply can't go wrong with three single coils in an S-type guitar. They're extremely flexible for all styles of clean tones and drive, even spitting out some alnico V high output for more extreme uses. Use the five-way selector to get nuanced variations of the legendary dynamic tone.

    Man, what a guitar. When people say this punches above its weight, they mean it. This easily feels and plays like a $1200+ guitar, except its $570 USD. Fantastic tone that is moderately warmer than a strat (less shrill) but the spank and shimmer are still there. The roasted maple feels incredible and the guitar is simply beautiful. If you’re considering getting this, stop considering and just do it.

    This is my 2nd Sire from Andertons. Great service and fast shipping. Cheaper to purchase from UK then to buy here in the states.

    For the price point this is a fantastic guitar. I would recommend it to anyone that wants a strat at a good price. This feels and plays better than my Fender Player series.
