SOLD Sire V7 Marcus Miller Second Gen £280 sale or trade
Babcary, Somerset

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Up for sale is my Sire V7 Marcus Miller Second Gen 4-string bass with the Sire gig bag. The bass is a natural and is essentially in new condition as shown by the pictures I hope. I can't see a mark or a ding on it which shouldn't be too surpising because I've only had it 3 months and the guy I bought it from says he purchased it new from Anderton's this year. So why am I selling? It's not an entirely (or even slightly) rational reason considering I've only started playing this year and the Sire is more bass than I need at my level. I love the jazz bass format and I've decided I want a passive jazz and I want to spend a bit of money to get something I love. So on the off chance someone has a nice Fender Jazz - I'd love an American standard - and wants to trade I'd be happy to do a trade and cash deal for instruments worth up to £900. It seems unlikely however, so I suspect it will be a straight sale. I'm in Somerset so I'm happy to courier the instrument at buyer's cost to anywhere in the UK (and the EU as well I guess). 

I haven't photographed the gig bag, but its pristine like the bass. I know people are going to ask how much it weighs, but I don't have any scales here unfortunately. Hoping that information is available online. As far as I know the bass is completely standard so the spec will be as below: 


Body Material: Swamp Ash / North American Alder

Pickguard: Ivory Pearl  / Tortoise


Neck Material: 1 Piece Hard Maple

Neck Shape: C-Shape

Scale: 34”

Fingerboard: Hard Maple / Ebony

Fingerboard Radius: 9.5”

Frets: Medium, 20 Frets

String Nut: Natural Bone

Neck Joint: 4 Bolt Steel Square Plate


Pickups: Marcus Super Jazz Advanced

Electronics: Marcus Heritage - 3 with Middle-Frequency Control

Controls: Volume / Tone (Dual Pot), Pickup Blender, Treble, Middle / Middle Frequency (Dual Pot), Bass, Mini Toggle (Active / Passive )


Knobs: Jazz Type Black Plastic

Bridge: Heavy Mass Standard

Tuning Gear: Premium Open-Gear

Hardware Finish: Chrome

Would you be able to post / courier and if so how much? Collection would be impossible at the moment.

Yes, happy to post, but another guy in Manchester also wants it. I’ll check cost of postage and see who wants to go ahead and buy.

Hermes is quoting £16.49 to deliver - if it was picked up tomorrow you'd get it on Monday. I'd also need to buy a bass box because it seems unwise to send it in just the gig bag. They're £14. I think the Hermes price only includes £25 of insurance cover so you'd need to think about whether you want to take a chance on that or cover replacement value. Cheers, Richard

Please don’t use Hermes.  Pay the extra - sent one fully insured same price for £27 with UPS collected from my doorstep. Next day delivery.  Hermes lose parcels as a matter of course in my experience.  Had many sleepless nights due to their rubbish service.

      So how long have you been playing bass, and why did you start?
      I think I started playing bass around when I was around 16 or so, a couple of years after I had started to learn how to play guitar, which makes the time I have played bass about 27 years by now, most of that time having had bass as my main instrument of choice, although having continued to play guitar on the sideline all along.
      It all started one day at band rehearsal where I by pure incident picked up the bass players bass and started playing, fell in love with the sound and feel of playing it, right there on the spot, and soon after answered an add by a drummer and a guitarist/vocalist seeking a bass player for their band.
      After an audition session I got accepted as their new bass player, and even got a lot of praise from the drummer for my capabilities on bass, who was a skilled musician that knew how to sight read music, and both played piano and guitar on the sideline, beside drums, (the same two people, that drummer and that guitarist/vocalist, though in a new different band, that I much later since recorded a 2 track Single and a 4 track EP with, which were released on a small independent record label some of our friends owned, before I eventually decided to leave that band, much to my later regret, though I did get to contribute to a few of the compositions of their later full length album, even if not recording anything for it).
      The first few months with that first original band I didn't even own my own bass yet, but had to borrow one.
      But soon after I decided to put my focus on playing bass over playing guitar.
      For some reason playing bass just came more natural to me, the instrument just felt right in my hands, and as it turned out I must have been thinking much more like a bass player than a guitarist all along.

      Hi all, 
      SALE PRICE: 600, 500 480 - SHIPPED. DETAILS BELOW. 
      TRADE ITEMS: No longer interested in trade items. 
      I'm listing my Warwick RockBass Star Bass 5 String for sale or for trade for particular items! I'm not quite sure the value of the RockBass model currently, but I'm aware of recent listings, as well as the basses value new from Andertons and Thomann etc. I bought the bass last year from someone who had looked after the bass very well, and hadn't had chance to gig the bass. I'd bought it for a country project, but it didn't work out, and in the end never got gigged - as such, it's been sat in my studio for the past 12 months untouched, mainly in it's hard case. It had fresh strings and a set up at the time, and of course has been kept well at the studio. The only damage to report was made by the previous owner, and is on the lower heel right at the top. It is a very very small paint chip, but of course is worth mentioning. 
      In the current situation, contact-less pickup is of course accepted, or I can courier this, either hard case or soft case. 
      The bass works and sounds perfect, electronics are in order and plays great.

      Just out of curiosity, anyone who also uses an always (or almost always) on 1 octave up effect to emulate an 8 string bass, or a real 8 (or 10) string "octave" bass as your main?
      Currently my main bass is an Ibanez GSRM20 Mikro Bass with just a DiMarzio Model P pickup wired directly to the output jack socket, tuned 2 half steps above E standard tuning, as in F#1 to A2, which I run through an always on TC Electronic Sub'N'Up Mini octaver pedal,. which is set with a 1 octave up blended with the clean signal.
      Actually manged, thanks to the EQ'ing of the input signal that is fed to the octave engine and the processed output signal that the Toneprint editor allows for, to make the octave up tone sound pretty realistic without any digital artifacts whatsoever, just using the stock polyphonic octaver, on which the octave up signal has as good as perfect tracking and very short, almost unnoticeable, latency, and in my opinion already without utilizing the Toneprint editor sounds much more natural than for example the EHX POG pedals, which while also tracking as good as perfect with very short latency (and for some reason lower latency on the octave down signal than the Sub'N'Up), , has a somewhat organ or synth like quality to it.
      I use it as the main instrument for a progressive psychedelic stoner rock solo project I am working on at the moment, which instrumentation I plan predominantly to consist of just bass, drums/percussion and vocals.
