Enjoy An Innovative 70's J-Bass With Signature Style - The Sire Marcus Miller V7 Vintage Alder 4 String Bass Guitar
Marcus Miller and SIRE wish to see everyone enjoying and playing music. To make this happen, Marcus Miller and SIRE have been on a mission for several years to build the highest quality bass at an extraordinarily low price, and making it available to everyone. The result is a line of Marcus Miller bass models that have a fantastic sound and look.
The Marcus Signature 70's V7 Vintage Model
What sets the V7 Vintage apart is that it has been innovatively set up to sound like the original 70's bass, preferred by Marcus Miller. Its construction makes it bring out much more plush characteristics, especially from the formvar pickup known to be "vintage correct". Its neck comes with custom Rolled Fretboard Edges that make a huge difference in the overall feel.

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.
North American Alder
This traditional North American Alder is is known for its loud, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and great lows that is perfect for the classic jazz bass sound.
Marcus Vintage Standard Bridge
Marcus Miller SIRE V7 bass is equipped with the newly designed Marcus Vintage-S Bridge with 60's style screw type saddles that enhance the vintage character of the bass.
Rolled Fretboard Edges
Sire takes overall playability to the next level with the rolled fretboard edges. Formerly what only custom shops had achieved, is now available in the Sire 2nd Gen series. These rounded edges will give players a firmer and more natural grasp.
This model also comes 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 from 80Hz to 2000Hz, which is convenient when trying to find the desired sound.
Stable, Accurate Tuning
SIRE’s premium open gear machine heads are developed with an accurate gear ratio for the high reliability in tuning.
It's one of the most important parts of the guitar that influences the performance, playability, and tone of the instrument. The bone nut is considered to deliver more balanced, brighter, and smoother tones than plastic or other materials.
Hard Maple Neck
One-piece Canadian hard maple is used to minimize movement and stabilize the neck in order to maintain its original shape and condition, reducing the loss of vibration it maximizes the tone for lasting sustain.
Maple fingerboards mean clear highs and sharpness in tone. The bright and clean sound of a maple fingerboard is favored by many players.
