NBD - Sire V3

Recommended Posts

Took a Sire V3 5 string in as a trade for an amp a couple of weeks ago. Basically as new, however the preamp had seemingly taken a knock in transit and a couple of caps had broken off.

”No bother” I thought, the bass sounded great in passive mode, so I set about removing the preamp, and wiring the bass fully passive with series/parallel switching on push/pull pot.

Not my neatest work, but it sounds great!

And while the knobs are just place-holders until I can find a matching set that fits, a few people have mentioned that they actually like them haha...I’m not sure:

Congrats, looks a nice bass, although 3 completely different knobs looks odd, I'm sure you'll sort that out.

Cool bass.

I did have some Jazz knobs delivered for it, but (even after doing the research) they didn’t fit. So they went on my Jazz fretless, and will look out for something else for this.

Looks like a nice wee bass, also good to know that the routing is neat enough that you can have it without the pick guard. 

Do the V3s have the rolled neck or smoothed edges?

Yes, rolled edges on Gen 2 V3’s
