This is a beautiful example of the Sire Version 2 Marcus Miller P7 5 string. I bought it new at Andertons - I picked it out as the nicest P7 they had in stock in the store (Sire quality control is excellent, so they were all good).
It has only been played in trying it out and setting it up, and I was looking forward to playing it. Sadly illness and a need to downsize intervened.It is a hugely capable and versatile active/passive bass, with 3 band active tone controls including mid freq sweep, and a passive master tone control. It still even has the protective film on the pickguard.. Andertons are currently awaiting more P7 stock to meet demand.. So here is a chance to get yourself one ahead of the queue and at a bargain price. I'll pack really carefully. The Sire Marcus Miller P7 is the ultimate versatile, vintage-style bass and this Version 2 model improves on that winning formula. Version 2 retains the exceptional preamp and reliable quality but adds a few improvements such as re-designed pickups, matte-finish necks, flatter fingerboard radii and more! This P7 has an alder body which gives it a well-rounded tone and a comfortable weight that won't hurt your back while gigging.
Sire have made a number of changes to the neck of the Version 2 P7s to make it more comfortable and playable. The fingerboard is now ebony which provides a smooth, natural-feeling playing experience and some say it adds a bright, snappy tone. The fingerboard radius has been changed to 9.5-inch which makes fretting notes more comfortable and the neck now has a matte finish which feels great in the hand and helps you to move up and down the neck with ease. The P7 Version 2 features new and improved Marcus Miller Super Precision/Jazz Advanced Pickups.These pickups have been completely re-designed for a clearer, higher resolution sound. These pickups, in combination with Sire's much-praised active preamp, result in an articulate, open-sounding bass.
