Manufacturer's Description

Sire Marcus Miller V7 2nd Gen Bass Guitar, Fretless, 4-String, TS, Tobacco Sunburst

Marcus Miller and SIRE wants to see everyone enjoying and playing music. To make this happen, Marcus Miller and SIRE have been on a mission for past several years to build the best quality bass at a price that is unheard of and make it available to everyone. The result is a new line of Marcus Miller bass models that are awesome sounding, fantastic looking, and high quality but extraordinarily low priced. We are happy that SIRE Marcus Miller basses are now available and anticipate more people to play and enjoy music.

North American Alder
A popular choice for most bass guitars is the North American Alder. Other basses at this price range commonly use Basswood or Agathis tonewood but Sire Guitars chooses the traditional North American Alder which is known for its strong clear full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows that is perfect for the traditional jazz bass sound.

Features

  • The wood choice for the body: premium swamp ash tone wood / North American alder.
    • It is built North American Alder which is a high-quality tonewood that is not common in this price range bass.
  • High-quality premium Jazz bass pickups made with US-made Heavy Formvar coil.
    • The pickups have been upgraded and made with Fiber Bobbin and Alnico 5 magnet, and US manufactured heavy formvar wires for that rich and strong Jazz bass sound.
  • Built with the new Marcus Miller’s heavy mass bridge. This bridge has been specially designed and manufactured at the request of Marcus Miller.
    • By adding a heavy mass saddle to the traditional jazz bass bridge, more rich and punchy tone is generated.
  • The top quality new Marcus Miller 3band eq/preamp system.
    • SIRE’s 3-band EQ preamp is a new development for the Marcus Miller series bass in order to meet the needs of Marcus Miller’s versatility and to cover various styles of music.
  • Lacquered and finished fretboard
    • Your fretboard will be protected and last longer, regardless of the strings you use. A thin and smooth finish is applied for increased longevity and ease of playing.

SIRE preamp is a perfect example that represents our technology and philosophy integrated into our instruments. With multiple tone controls, you can have total command in finding and getting the tone you want. The use of 18v battery enables the player to attain unaltered natural sound with 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 an option for 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. All models also come with sweepable midrange control option that Marcus Miller advocates as a must-have option. The middle frequency control knob allows the player to set sound frequency anywhere between 80Hz~2kHz. This option will be very handy in finding the desired sound.

SOUND UPGRADE

The nut is one of the most important parts of the guitar that influences the performance, playability, and tone of the instrument. Depending on the quality of the material and elasticity, the nut can improve the sound or degrade the sound. Although bone nut is more costly and harder to work with, it is considered to deliver more balanced, clearer and smoother tone than plastic or eurite material.
