Sire Marcus Miller Vintage V7 | 4 String BASS

Sire Marcus Miller Vintage V7 | 4 String BASS

How about that ehh; soaking the Autumn Sun Shine, under a Tree by our famous hand built rubble wall. Always happy to have these high quality low cost bass guitars, this one is a Sire Marcus Miller Bass Vintage V7, it is a pre-loved instrument with blemishes around its body, nothing that effects its playability. Knobs have been upgraded to chrome ones and is ready to add more bass frequencies to its next owner! 


- The Pickups

The Marcus Vintage-J Revolution Pickup Set is a newly upgraded pickup made with US Plain Enamel coil and complete with a 70’s pickup spacing allowing the V7 Vintage to reproduce the traditional vintage jazz bass sound. This high-quality premium Jazz bass pickup features a higher resolution and clearer sound. We have been collaborating with Marcus Miller to tailor the best sound balance and it will be introduced in the 2nd Gen series. The exterior of the pickup has also been upgraded as it is now printed with a logo.Vintage-J set has slightly more delicate sound than the Super-J Set while the Super-J Set has slightly more punchy sound than the Vintage-J Set. We have changed the Alnico Magnet’s magnetizing method to produce the similar aging sound of a 20-year-old Heavy Formvar Pickup. 

We have changed the coil to Plain Enamel and installed a program into a coil winding machine which enabled us to embody almost the same speed and winding crossover angle like the handmade winding.We decided to name this pickup technology “Revolution Pickup Technology."


- The body Shape

Jazz bass type is the industry’s standard bass model with its signature vintage sound. This is an all-around bass that is suitable for fingering, slapping, and other techniques and styles of playing. With both a classic and modern feel and design, this new bass can produce the desired sound for all genres of music from soft to even strong metal grunge.


- The Preamp

SIRE’s unique preamp system is a perfect example that represents our technology and philosophy that integrated into our instruments. With multiple tone controls, players have the total command to achieve the ideal tone they desire. The use of 18v batteries enables the player to attain unaltered natural sounds with strong and powerful outputs. With the 3-band EQ, players can carry out versatility in tones that will be suited for all music sessions and performances. 


All models also come with swappable midrange control options that Marcus Miller advocates as a must-have option. The middle frequency control knob allows the players to set the sound frequency to anywhere between 80Hz~2,000Hz. This option will be convenient when trying to find the desired sound.


- The body Material

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, but Sire Guitars chooses the traditional North American Alder which is known for its loud, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and great lows that is perfect for the classic jazz bass sound.


- The Fretboard

We have taken the overall playability to the next level with the ROLLED FRETBOARD EDGES. What only custom shops can achieve, is now available in the Sire 2nd Gen series. These rounded edges will give players a firmer and more natural grasp, compared to the typical fretboards. We were well aware of the difficulties we would face in our ambition to apply the rolled fretboard edges in a mass production factory. Together with the production team, we worked tirelessly to make this theory a reality. This was quite a challenge, almost an impossible mission. We tried making several adjustments to the production process and even introduced a new machine. Since our Sire basses also have bindings, this made it exceptionally challenging, way beyond our imaginations. But eventually, we found the answers, and we are ecstatic to present the Rolled Fretboard Edges in all our 2nd Generation models.


- The Truss Rod

Sire's 5 string bass guitars are made with Double Carbon Fiber Reinforcement Rods. 5 string bass guitars tend to have weak neck binding structures due to strong string tensions. For this reason, many high-end 5 string basses are made with Carbon Rods. Therefore, to maintain neck stiffness and stability, two carbon rods are applied to all Sire's 5 string bass guitars. We call this Double Carbon Fiber Reinforcement Rod.


- The Machine Heads 

SIRE’s premium open gear machine heads are developed with an accurate gear ratio for the high reliability in tuning.


- The Nut

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 either improve or degrade the sound. Although the bone nut is more costly and more difficult to work with, it is considered to deliver more balanced, brighter and smoother tones than plastic or other materials.


- The Neck and Fingerboard

The neck is made with one-piece Canadian hard maple. The hardness and strength of the hard maple minimize the movement and stabilizes the neck to maintain its original shape and condition. The one-piece neck also reduces the loss of vibration and maximizes the tone sustainability for a lasting tone.


Maple fingerboards [Swamp ash body] delivers clear highs and sharpness in tone. The bright and clean sound of maple fingerboard is desired by many players.
