***SOLD*** Marcus Miller Sire V7 5 string in black
£250
Cullingworth, Bradford


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

For sale is a Sire V7 bought new from Anderton's in 2018. It's a lovely bass especially for the price, you've probably seen all the reviews online if you're reading this anyway. Selling as I've recently purchased an Alpher bass.

I've priced this at c£100 less than others, as the mid range controls on the active 3 band are permanently "flat", and won't boost or cut (or adjust the frequency). The bass and treble, tone and blend work perfectly well, so it is in effect a 2 band eq which is plenty for many, and was never an issue for me as I used it in passive mode anyway!

The only other point to call out is that there is little buckle rash on the rear of the bass, and some other little marks here and there. These are nearly invisible when playing as the pictures should show - the close ups look far worse than the reality. Rest of the bass is in great condition.

Happy to arrange collection / meet up / courier (if absolutely essential, though I'd sooner avoid), and any questions / additional photos please let me know. Comes with original box, for what it's worth! 

Only trades I'm looking for are a wireless iem system, but a higher end one (I.e. Sennheiser / Shure) with cash adjustment if required.

Thanks, 

Rick

Thanks! Afraid I have no means to accurately weigh it - not the lightest by any means but definitely manageable, I'd guess under 10 lbs comparing it to my other basses... Sorry that's not hugely helpful!

Under 10lbs is pretty good for a 5’er of this Model my 4 string V7 is almost 11 lbs

Thanks - certainly not an exact science on my part so might be closer to that, but doesn't feel it, and I have a naff back!

If you have bathroom scales you could try the with bass - without bass method?

I don't have any myself, but I'll ask my friendly neighbours and let you know!

Edit - Me plus bass equals 14 stone and 0.5 pounds, me without bass equals 13 stone and 4.25 pounds. 14 pounds in a stone (right?) means it's 10.25 pounds, if my calculations are correct?

How has this not sold? If I didn’t have one already it would be. Seriously - there’s nothing out there sub £1,000 to touch it if you want a Jazz IMHO, and even compared to a US Deluxe Jazz 5 I’d have the Sire (better B string, better circuit, neck more stable, feel and sound every bit as good).
