Wow, just wow...

24.09.2015
I've had this bass for a month and a half now and it surprises and delights me every time I pick it up! I had sworn off jazz basses a few years ago, but after attending a clinic by Jamiroquai bassist Paul Turner and loving the tones he coaxed from his EXTREMELY expensive Alleva Coppolo 5 string jazz (and also chatting with a fellow bassist who owned a 4 string version of the Sire), I found myself in "need" of another!

I wasn't entirely confident that the bass would live up to the high ratings I'd seen here and elsewhere, but I needn't have worried. It has surpassed my expectations in every way. Tone, fit and finish are excellent. The B-string is MUCH better than I've experienced on an instrument in this price range, probably just falling short of the best I've owned at any price (a Dingwall AB1). Easily as good as my previously owned Lakland 5 string basses. This thing sounds glorious through my little Ashdown CTM30/Barefaced Retro 2x10 rig and through my PJB Bighead/H-850 headphone practice setup.

Down sides are mostly based on personal taste. The fingerboard radius is tighter than I've experienced on a 5 string before. At 7.25" it wold be tight for a 4 string, but I'm getting used to it. The bass has a pickup pan control rather than 2 volumes, which I prefer, but again I'm getting used to it - I may rewire it at some point though. It is a LITTLE heavy at 10lbs 3oz but balances really well which helps. The 3 pieces of alder in the body COULD have been better matched I suppose, but I've seen Fenders costing 4 times as much with worse wood matching. The frets could maybe do with a little polish, neck could maybe do with a 1/4 turn more relief, but it played excellently out of the box - no rattles,from the neck, no hum from the (rather good!) electronics. Headstock wouldn't be the most handsome around but it didn't put me off!

In spite of these points I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this bass to someone wanting a 5 string on a budget. It punches WAY above its weight and would be a good bass at ANY price. I don't agree with 5 star ratings, but at this price point there's no other option! It's the best money I've spent in my 23 years of playing. I really wish Sire would do a P-bass... just need to get the guys from Sire in a room with Pino!!!
