Marcus Miller V7 Bass Guitar
Operaticbabe, 29.05.2021
I've been saving up for this bass for about a year and when it arrived I was slightly disappointed. I had tried the V7 in a music shop and knew that this was the bass guitar for me. When my bass arrived and I set it up ready to play, I noticed how rough the edges of the frets were. My cheap bass has smooth edges but on this new bass they were rough and sharp. To the point where my skin had cut marks. The description says rolled edges but mine feel awful.
I was also disappointed that the bass is now strung with Ernie Ball and not D'addario strings but I guess it doesn't really matter. I can change the strings to suit my needs and taste.
The actual bass itself is great. The preamp is really useful and I'm enjoying trying the different sounds that I can now make on this bass. It's quite a heavy bass and so I'm using a padded strap to try and distribute the weight.
I love the colours of these basses. Mine is the burgundy although I would call it metallic dusty rose pink!! It's causing quite a stir in our band because it is such a great sounding bass.

I highly recommend this bass despite the edges of the frets being rough. I'm sure I will get used to it the more often I play. It is quite heavy but not as heavy as a Fender jazz bass. It plays beautifully and I love it.

Pros - great colours, great sound, extremely well made and weighs less than a Fender Jazz

Cons - for me it's the not so smooth rolled edges and it's slightly heavy

All in all though, it's a great bass and I recommend anyone thinking about buying it to watch Marcus Miller explaining how he came to help design the bass and to listen to him explaining how each knob works. This has been an invaluable lesson for me!!

Absoloutely Perfect
jexxd, 23.02.2021
After hearing good things about Sire basses I thought I'd finally splash the cash and I was not disappointed!

Firstly, it came out of the box with a really good setup with a very low action which is always nice to see. The bass feels really good in the hands, the rolled fretboard edges are great and I dont see why more manufacturers dont do this.

Now, lets talk about the monster of an EQ this thing has. The tonal capabilities of this Jazz bass are near endless. If I want a killer slap tone, I can get that. If I want a warm tone for walking bass, I can get that.

I would recommend this bass to everyone. At that price you really cant go wrong!

Best bang for the buck.
Andrew K, 03.06.2020
For the studio and live performance this bass is perfect, absolute Swiss army knife. There were a couple blemishes along the fret markers from the factory, but honestly that should be expected for an instrument of this price range.
Super comfy neck to play, overall a little heavy but a good strap helps here.
If bass isn't your main instrument and you want something to invest in a bass that will last you years to come, definitely consider a Sire V7.

Brilliant bass
Jon-A, 23.06.2020
How do they do it for the price? Sounds great, awesome feel to the neck, great set up out of the box and a fab colour. If you're looking for a Jazz this needs to be on your shopping list.
