Sire Marcus Miller V7 Vintage Alder 4 2nd Generation
The "Vintage" series from Sire feature the rear Jazz pickup in the 70's position which is closer to the bridge, the result is more low mid growl and poke. They also feature Black block inlays and Black pickguards
Designed in conjunction with Marcus Miller, the Sire V7 features an Alder body (warm rich low mids and bottom end), maple neck and maple fretboard. Block inlays and a slim profile neck shape that is incredibly comfortable in the hands.
Sire basses feature the superb active preamp onboard that gives you total tonal control with 3 band Eq (semi parametric Mid Range) as well as master Volume, Balance pot and passive tone control.
High quality twin Jazz pickups with fiber bobbin and alnico 5 magnets, these Marcus Miller Premium Jazz Bass pickups offer players a rich and original vintage jazz bass tone. Combine these with the onboard preamp and you have brilliant control over your tone.
The Marcus Miller High Mass bridge specifically designed for Sire delivers excellent transferal of resonance straight into the body. The result is a punchy focused and controlled bass tone that can cut through a mix or be mellowed to sit within the mix.
