An absolutely monster of a bass!!
Seanie McGeeney, 29.12.2020
First and foremost, my thanks to Thomann for their excellent sales and customer service. This bass is a must for anyone dipping their toes into the fretless world. The feel of the neck is simply a total pleasure to play, with the beautiful C style, where you don't feel the edge of the fret wire. The ebony fretboard is so so smooth, and your fingers just glide over it like a figure skater would on ice.

The combination of the flatwound strings, and the ebony fretboard, just creates a whole new sweet melodic voice, that allows you to bring out the most awesome ornamentation while playing.

Now on to the most frustrating part.... Which is.... I can't bring it out on the road because there are no gigs at present, Aarrrgghh!!

I'm running out of room in my music room, due to the amount of basses, (All purchased on Thomann I might add) but I feel compelled to also purchase the fretted version of the V7, and will do so in the new year.

Marcus Miller and Sire guitars, make a great team!!

Pros: 100% killer bass!!
Cons: Absolutely none!!

Bang for the money!
KnobbyKnobKnob, 16.12.2020
As I received this bass, I checked the intonation, action, and such. There was a very little to be messed with, as the factory setting was pretty much my style. I only brought the pickups a little higher, and changed the strings to Ernie Ball cobalt flats.

In passive mode, the bass sounds nice and warm. Fiddle a little with the tone knob and the pickup blend, you almost get the Jaco-esque sound.
In active mode, she turns into a beast. I'm no stranger to massive tones and earthquaking bass, as I primarily run a Warwick Covertte $$, but this bass has more of an embracing low. Don't get me wrong though, as the bass tone is HUGE. Treble is nice to the ears. You can turn it all the way on, and it still doesn't hurt. I spend most of my time fiddling with the mid knobs.

There is a few blemishes in the body around the pickups, as if they were burned. The bass did not come with the Hi-mass style bridge as depicted in Thomann's picture. It came with a Fender jazz style bridge although it looks much more modern and robust. Satin finish neck is GREAT.

How can they do it for the money ?????
Catslapper , 23.09.2019
Brilliant Fretless. I’ve been playing bass for a long long time and tried a friends Sire Marcus Millar Fretless a while ago and was blown away. Now got my own !!!! Build is excellent, better than my Fender Jazz. The neck is sublime. Action was great, needed a bit of a tweak but nothing major. The range of sounds is great, the basic ‘flat’ sound through a good valve amp is wonderful but the eq gives a massive range of possibilities. I really don’t know how Sire can make a bass of this quality for this price. I would really recommend these basses to everyone. Well done Sire.

The best bang for your buck in the bass world
albert_ara, 07.12.2020
You simply can't go wrong with the Marcus Miller line-up of basses. I've owned 3 of them total and they are my most used instruments by far at this point. The generation 2 of these instruments is an even more impressive package than the older version so I highly recommend you buy it.

The sound is particularly versatile with the built in pre-amp. I use this bass for everything from jazz fusion (Jaco sound) all the way to some funky Vulfpeck sounds and I've even played a few pop gigs where I got a sound similar to Matthew Carroll (Dua Lipa's bassist) and the playability is also extremely comfortable with the new rolled edges.

The only thing I can complain about was the shipping (it took long but due to COVID it's expected) but the condition of the package was very frightening causing very minor aesthetic damages. I hope that's just a one time thing.
The only complaint I've heard about the bass itself is that the tuners can sometimes be kinda messy. Haven't experienced that myself though.

Hope you find my review useful :)
