wow! V3 2nd gen!
DBband 02.09.2019
I've had the bass for two weeks now! I also bought a red first gen last year (curiosity) and am till enjoying it! Back to my white 2nd gen! I always change the strings no matter how good or bad because I've played 40-100 for a long long time! I did the usual setting up to my own taste, and after two weeks it's now exactly right for me! Truss rod, string height and pu height are now lovely! I did the same with my 1st gen as well! This 2nd gen is definately heavier than the 1st gen, I thought at first it was alder! The first gen is very light and comfy! This one is also comfy and the rounded neck edges are very nice! The pups are louder, more punchy and it?s a wonderful slap sound! I don't do much slapping but it does sound great! All in all I really enjoy these two basses very much! I've been a profi all my life and have a few wonderful vintage Fenders and the V3 s are the basses I'm playing most of the time! Maybe I was lucky because I have a V7 1st gen that comes nowhere near! Though my V7 1st gen fretless is also very nice! I think the V7 fretted was a bad one-off! Anyway I love the V3?s and I'm not going to say that they are good for the money.........they are good at any price! The tuners are ok and I prefer the bridge to those on the V7! I play them active, it gives a little more oomph, and I use only the blend ant tone! I don't use the active eq, I find it all a bit fiddly, though a lot of sounds can be obtained if wished for! I'm hoping they will work well for many years to come! Thanks to Thomann for the great service as alwasy.

P.S. I forgot to say what the cons are for me! I don?t like the headstock shape, I find it quite ugly and I would much prefer the truss rod
adjustment in the headstock! Other than that I enjoy the V3!

High-quality bass

The bass is amazing. For a little over 300 eur this is a real bargain. V3 is Sire's budget bass but the build quality is superb. The fretboard is so smooth, frets are perfect. The neck has a satin finish and is a real pleasure to play. There are really minor gaps on the neck and body joint, but it's really just an aesthetic thing.

Sounds that you can get from this bass, especially in active mode are so versatile. Amazing. If you're a slapper, you'd enjoy this.

Strings are D'Addario, 45-100 if I'm not mistaken.

The bass came in set up perfectly, I just tuned it, and was good to go to a studio.

I think this bass beats all squiers easily, and quality- and sound-wise, you'd expect this would cost 600-700 eur. Great value for money.

This isn’t a beginner bass. It’s a great bass and can be used for a “pro” players… I like all each part of this bass. Great sound, great quality and I love it.
