Sire Marcus Miller V3 5st 2nd Generation Mahogany
Marcus Miller Heritage-3 Preamp System
Top notch 3-band EQ preamp newly developed for this series in order to meet the needs of Marcus Miller's versatility and to cover various styles of music.
Rolled Fretboard Edges
What only custom shops can achieve, is now on the Sire 2nd Gen. These rounded edges will give users a firmer and more natural grasp compared to other typical fretboards.
Highest Quality Hard & Clear Paint
The V3 is coated with the highest quality paint that is also used in the V7 and M7 series. This gives the V3 a more elegant look compared to other introductory basses that are applied with low-cost paints.
Marcus Heritage-3 Preamp
SIRE's unique preamp system is a perfect example that represents our technology and philosophy that is integrated into our instruments.With multiple tone controls, players have total command to achieve the perfect tone they desire. The use of 18v batteries enables the player to attain unaltered natural sounds with strong and powerful outputs. With the 3-band EQ, players are able to carry out versatility in sounds that will be suited for all music sessions and performances. All models are built with the option of both active and passive modes. Even in the passive mode, the volume, tone, and pickup balancer are fully functional, giving the players more control of the tone in any mode.
Marcus Standard-J Revolution Set
The Marcus Standard-J Revolution Pickup Set is constructed with magnets and coils that have already been tested for compatibility with a mahogany body since this combination was previously used in the M3 models. This gives the V3 the unique, quality sound that is hard to find in introductory basses.
Rolled Fretboard Edges
We have taken the overall playability to the next level with the ROLLED FRETBOARD EDGES.What only custom shops can achieve, is now available in the Sire 2nd Gen series. These rounded edges will give players a firmer and more natural grasp, compared to the typical fretboards.We were well aware of the difficulties we would face in our ambition to apply the rolled fretboard edges in a mass production factory. Together with the production team, we worked tirelessly to make this theory a reality.This was quite a challenge, almost an impossible mission.We tried making several adjustments to the production process and even introduced a new machine. Since our Sire basses also have bindings, this made it exceptionally challenging, way beyond our imaginations. But eventually, we found the answers and we are ecstatic to present the Rolled Fretboard Edges in all our 2nd Generation models.
Double Carbon Fiber Reinforcement Rod
Sire's 5 string bass guitars are made with Double Carbon Fiber Reinforcement Rods. 5 string bass guitars tend to have weak neck binding structures due to strong string tensions. For this reason, many high-end 5 string basses are made with Carbon Rods. Therefore, to maintain neck stiffness and stability, two carbon rods are applied to all Sire's 5 string bass guitars. We call this Double Carbon Fiber Reinforcement Rod.
Jazz Bass Type
Jazz bass type is the industry's standard bass model with its signature vintage sound.This is an all-around bass that is suitable for fingering, slapping, and other techniques and styles of playing.With both a classic and modern feel and design, this new bass can produce the desired sound for all genres of music from soft to even strong metal grunge.
Body – Indonesian Mahogany
The body is made with Indonesian Mahogany rather than Chinese Basswood, Agathis, or Nato : materials commonly used in common low-costing basses. Indonesian Mahogany is well known for its rich, full-bodied tone which produces a warm and clean sound.
Ease of Playability 1 Piece Hard Maple Neck
The neck is made with one-piece Canadian hard maple. The hardness and strength of the hard maple minimizes the movement and stabilizes the neck to maintain its original shape and condition. The one-piece neck also minimizes the loss of vibration and maximizes the tone sustainability for a lasting tone.
All Steel Material Bridgemarcus Standard Bass Bridge(With Body Thru)
The V3 is equipped with a Marcus Standard Bass Bridge. Typically, bridges in introductory basses are made with a type of alloy using Zinc. Bass bridges with Zinc are easy to manufacture and inexpensive. However, these Zinc alloy bridges may look good on the outside but has difficulty in creating good and quality sounds. Our V3 model’s Marcus Standard Bass Bridge may look like a basic bridge made with Zinc, but it is in fact an All Steel Material Bridge that adds durability and better sound achievement.
The Marcus Standard Bass Bridge also has a Body Thru method that allows the bass string to be adjusted through an opening in the back of the body, allowing a tighter set-up. This mechanism allows a more balanced, accurate, and stable tone.
Hard & Clear paint
Most introductory basses are made with hard, less transparent paint. For a more premium look, the V3 models are made with the same high-quality paint used in the V7 and M7 models. We want our customers to experience a bright and cheerful feeling when they see our Sire basses in stores. Just recall the feeling of seeing a low-costing instrument. That unsatisfactory reaction is partially due to the quality of paint. The paint applied on the V3 is not only durable but also aids in getting that better sound quality.
Stable and Accurate Tuning
Equipped with SIRE’s own premium open gear machine heads developed with accurate gear ratio, the machine heads are very reliable in tuning.
The nut is one of the most important parts of the guitar that influences the performance, playability, and tone of the instrument. Depending on the quality of the material and elasticity, the nut can either improve or degrade the sound. Although the bone nut is more costly and harder to work with, it is considered to deliver more balanced, clearer and smoother tones than plastic or other materials.
The battery insertion compartment has changed from a plastic cover to an Ash wood battery cover for longer lasting durability and aesthetic upgrade.
