Less expensive High-end Gear!`
MARJZ, 25.10.2017
I finally jumped into the craze after a year of never ending reading and watching Youtube videos about Sire basses. It was a bit of gamble for me since I never tested one. But I trusted the consensus that these basses are really good considering the price point.

Pros:
? Elegant Looking finish.
? Wide variety of sounds / Versatile.
? Good playability
? Good re-work on the tuning machines.
? Budget-friendly

CONS:
? Typical weight issues but not much.
? Truss Rod access. I prefer the headstock access to it.
? Rubber control knobs. But these can be replaced so not an issue at all.
? Limited color finishes to choose from as compared to V7.

VERDICT:
Overall a good bass. Considering the price point, Sire has leveled up the V-Series in an impressive way from the maple top body wood, ebony board, the reworked tuners up to the improved bridge and pickups. All of which offered only on high-end premium basses. And you can have them at discount with the V9! ?????
