This is my 5th Sire V7 bass so I guess you could say I am a convert. The previous basses are all the maple neck with ash body option so this is my first venture into rosewood neck with an alder body and I think this is the best sounding of them all.
If you are not mainly into slap this is the one for you. The sound is still crisp so you can get that marcus tone thanks to the superb active pre amp however the combination of rosewood and alder has the vintage jazz bass sound as well, everything from motown to class rock especially when you switch off the electronics and play is passive mode. The action is great and plays like an instrument costing three times the price tag. The finish is of a high quality and the pick ups are amazing. They are made with fiber bobbins, alnico 5 magnets, and heavy formvar wire to replicate classic J-style tone. The pre amp is 18V preamp with a sweepable-mid EQ stack in a 3-band package, and a main-tone control that also works in active mode. The bass control contains huge lows, the treble dial serves up modern sizzle for adding edge to fingerstyle playing or brightness to pops while trying to cop a favorite Miller riff. I think you can tell I love the Sire range, get one you will not be disapointed

Superb!

Don't have one? Buy it!

I use it daily to play pop, rock'n roll, funk, and rock the Sh... out of it. The preamp magic is straight from heaven.

Cons: it's a bit heavy. When I turn the volume the tone turns as well. But it's not a biggy! You can find some imperfections in paint, but only small details

Pros: Well setup. Good strings. Sound grate. Looks sexy. Active mode gives nice tonal abilities.+ sweepable mids. Doesn't have the "bzzz" while recording.
