Absolutely showroom condition Sire Marcus Miller fretless bass, in deep & glorious Red Metallic. This bass has never been gigged hence is totally unmarked. She plays like an absolute dream, with a gorgeous action & all the whistles & bells you need to give you pretty much any sound. She comes with (Unfitted) chrome pickup cover & Sire Padded Gig Bag, for great protection.
The Marcus Miller V7 is the flagship model for Sire guitars and this Fretless Vintage version takes their best-selling bass to another level.
This is an incredibly affordable fretless – with most fretless guitars starting at double the price. When you consider you’re getting all of the premium appointments from a Marcus Miller bass with a fretless fingerboard, you realize what a steal an instrument like this is.
The focus of the upgrade has been to improve the sound of the Vintage. Marcus Miller worked alongside Sire to redesign the pickups with stronger magnets and coils to deliver a cleaner and deeper tone. You’ll hear a big difference in the sound balance when comparing version two and the original. The pickups will also feature a printed logo.
One other cosmetic change is the pickguard, which is also installed on five-string basses as well as four-string.
The V7 Vintage has either an Alder body that adds darker tones and warmth, or a Swamp Ash body which is known for its brightness. A Hard Maple neck offers excellent stability and is topped by a Maple fingerboard. This provides your tone with crisp higher frequencies.
Sire guitars are the company that build the now famous Marcus Miller basses. Marcus Miller himself is a world-renowned jazz and funk bassist with some of the best bass chops on the planet. And he’s worked with Sire instruments to make basses that are affordable but far exceed their price point in terms of feel, style and above all, sound.
How do they do this? Unlike a lot of other guitar companies that outsource their work, Sire own the factory where their basses are built. This means cheaper production and full control over the quality of instrument from start to finish.
Sire instruments are doing the world a bit of good by taking a share of the corporate profits and giving back to society. They founded schools in Cambodia and Laos to teach children’s music lessons.
The Sire preamp is a perfect example representing our technology and philosophy integrated into our instruments. With multiple tone controls, you have total command in finding and getting the sound you want. The use of 18v battery enables the player to attain unaltered natural sound with a strong and powerful output. With 3 band EQ, the player can have versatility in sound that can be suited for all occasions of music sessions. All models come with the option of active and passive settings. Even in the passive mode, volume, tone, pickup balancer is fully functional, giving the player more controls for the tone in any mode.
Jazz bass type is the industry standard bass model with its signature vintage sound. This is an all-round bass that is suitable for fingering, slap and all techniques and style of playing. With both classic and modern feel and design, this new bass can produce the desired sound for any genres of music from funk to metal.
The neck is made with one-piece Canadian hard maple. With its strength, it decreases movement and stabilizes the neck to maintain the original shape and condition. The neck minimizes the loss of vibration and maximizes the tone-sustain.
