Sire Marcus Miller V7


Product Details

Sire Marcus Miller V7

The pickups are single coil pickups made with a fiber bobbin, Alnico 5 magnets, and heavy Formvar wire.  They are positioned in the ‘60’s position.  Like everything else on this bass, the pickups are made by Sire Guitars.

This 18-volt preamp is the most versatile preamp I have used on a bass.  

When strapped up or balanced on the knee, the bass balances very well without any neck dive.
