Sire: high quality, low price
Stefan van Rrrrrr, 22.06.2021
Looking for a reasonably priced passive 5-string jazz bass? This could be the one for you. Important side note: the neck on this 5-string is stable, comfortable and a beauty, but it's also really heavy. Tricky to balance, in my experience. I tried it out extensively and found the following:

5 out of 5 in terms of features, especially taking the price into account. The roasted maple neck is sooo comfortable, and it looks really tasty on top of that. Body shape and color exceed their price range as well if you ask me, definitely more impressive in real life than on the promo photo's.

Sound: 3/5. This is a passive bass so the output level and versatility might leave a bit to desire compared to the rest of the Sire V7 for instance. It is okay, but for me it just didn't cut it. This was supposed to be my main 5-string, as I usually play 4, but I couldn't quite get the sound I wanted. 100% down to taste. Credit where credit's due: it does sound like a Jazz.

Build quality: 4/5. As mentioned, the neck feels GREAT. Rolled edges for. the. win! The only thing keeping it from being 5/5, is fine detail.

All in all, I would recommend the V5 but I would also absolutely mention the weight of the neck as the main weak point, which made me decide to return it.
