Sire Basses V3 Series Marcus Miller 5-String Black
Living legend and his bass
Marcus Miller and SIRE wish to see everyone enjoying and playing music. To make this happen, Marcus Miller and SIRE have been on a mission for several years to build the best quality bass at an unbelievable price, making it available to everyone. The result is a new line of Marcus Miller bass models that have a fantastic sound and look, and are high quality but with an extraordinarily low price. We are ecstatic that SIRE Marcus Miller basses are now available to everyone with a new hope that more people will be able to play and enjoy the music they love.
Indonesian mahogany body and Canadian hard maple neck
The V3 body is made with Indonesian mahogany which is known for its warm, clear, full-bodied sound. The neck is made with Canadian hard maple for a premium look and feel.
Marcus Miller Heritage-3 Preamp
Top notch 3-band EQ preamp newly developed for this series 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.
