Sire V7 - to buy or not to buy...

Recommended Posts

Any advice to this:
Like many, one of my 3 axes (still a student hence so few) is a 2012 MIM Fender, black body, rose neck. After scraping the neck finish off to oil it, the skunk has started to pop out so it's playable but just a slight annoyance and had been looking into eventually replacing the neck with a maple top from Warmoth which is around the £300 mark.
I've also fitted a badass 2 & Hipshot plus done the stack pot job for both S/P & a kill switch.

However, am an active fan plus prefer maple sound fretboard & seeing that Sire are looking at releasing the V7 as a lefty in summer do you reckon should sell off the fender to buy one? Or keep it? Or have both?

I think you could get aaround £250-£300 for your Fender on eBay so its worth a go if you want the active Sire

I've had Fenders (of all types). Now got two V7's. Not missing my Fenders at all.....!

Everything about them looks good and at a reasonable price. However, I just could not live with the headstock with or without the name of one of my favourite bass players on it.
