Have just been looking at the Sire Marcus Miller range of basses and they seem like not only fantastic quality but incredible value for money. Has anyone on the forum come across these or bought one?

Yes I bought a V7 4 string ash body last year, did a few gigs and a few mods on it to make it a better bass, ( imo the bridge is not good) after a while I discovered the neck was just not for me, it's too thin, a brush handle at the nut. It may be that other people would like it and be happy.
I got myself a new Yamaha BB734a and so far so good I like the neck on it a lot better.
I posted on here looking for Pup heights for the 734, but as of yet no replies
Oh I'm selling the Sire at the moment if you know anyone interested lol

Hi whamni, welcome to the forum :)

Also thanks for the feedback on the Sire V7. I am not a bass player myself but these do look interesting and I would definitely look at one if I were in the market. Congrats on the Yamaha BB734a by the way ;)

As you may have noticed we don't have many bass players on the forum which is something I would like to change but of course it's a bit of a catch 22. In order to attract more players there already needs to be players here and posting. I am sure we can crack that particular nut eventually though :)

I "should" have the classifieds part of the site up and running over the next couple of days so do hang around. It will be totally free to advertise so you would have nothing to lose in putting your Sire bass up there :)

hey Saul,
I got a Sire V7 for a little while, I hated the neck profile, it does not taper as it goes from Nut to Body making playing up a the neck quite uncomfortable IMHO.
The bass sounded good but I just could not get past the Neck profile issue so I sold it. It was quite heavy too...

Hi Pablo

Thanks for that info. I wonder how many others feel the same way. I will have to get to a store and try one myself.

What did you replace it with?
