Fantastic sound, looks and price.

Marcus Miller and SIRE have been on a mission for several years to build the best quality bass at an unbelievable price, making it available to everyone. The result is a line of Marcus Miller bass models that have a fantastic sound and look, and are high quality but with an extraordinarily low price.

Indonesian Mahogany Body and Canadian Hard Maple Neck
The V3 body is made with Indonesian Mahogany which is known for its warm, clear, full-bodied sound. The neck is made with Canadian Hard Maple for a premium look and feel.

Marcus Miller Heritage-3 Preamp
Top notch 3-band EQ preamp newly developed for this series to meet the needs of Marcus Miller’s versatility and to cover various styles of music.

Rolled Fretboard Edges
What only custom shops can achieve, is now on the Sire 2nd Gen. These rounded edges will give users a firmer and more natural grasp compared to other typical fretboards.

Highest Quality Hard & Clear Paint
The V3 is coated with the highest quality paint that is also used in the V7 and M7 series. This gives the V3 a more elegant look compared to other introductory basses that are applied with low-cost paints.  

Marcus Standard-J Revolution Set
The Marcus Standard-J Revolution Pickup Set is constructed with magnets and coils that have already been tested for compatibility with a mahogany body since this combination was previously used in the M3 models. This gives the V3 the unique, quality sound that is hard to find in introductory basses.

Jazz bass type is the industry’s standard bass model with its signature vintage sound. This is an all-around bass that is suitable for fingering, slapping, and other techniques and styles of playing. With both a classic and modern feel and design, this new bass can produce the desired sound for all genres of music from soft to even strong metal grunge.
