Sire Marcus Miller V7 5st (Ash) 2nd Generation Features:

BODY – SWAMP ASH

Premium Swamp Ash tone wood is usually found in higher priced instruments. Swamp Ash tone wood is known to produce a well-balanced tone. It is highly resonant and offers a nice balance of pleasant highs, firm lows, and a slightly scooped midrange which is great for slap playing.The characteristics of this wood enable players to emulate Marcus Miller’s tone a step further.

EASE OF PLAYABILITY 1 PIECE HARD MAPLE NECK

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

Rolled Fretboard Edges

What only custom shops can achieve, is now on the Sire 2nd Gen. These rounded edges will give users a firmer and more natural grasp compared to other typical fretboards

DOUBLE CARBON FIBER REINFORCEMENT 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.
