It’s hard to select only one when there are many “good” choices. That’s why Sire makes sure that there will be one feature in every series that you might love and make you stand out when you play them. On the other note, there is one feature that is present in most of our basses and electric guitars that is becoming the Sire players’ favorite. - The Champ Neck!
Let’s talk about our Larry Carlton signature S- series, the S7, S7 FM, and the S7 vintage. These models were born in different eras. The S7 and its flamed maple variant came out first, then the vintage model got recently released. The S7 is the traditional S-Style gear, built and configured after the body and tone preferences of the award-winning musician and guitar legend, Mr. Larry Carlton. With that in mind, S7 FM is aesthetically standing out in the crowd. The vintage S7 gives a more classic feel and tone for modern playing. But what makes them stand out altogether is the quality of its neck.
The roasted hard maple, rolled fretboard edges, shiny and smooth fretboard and satin-finished C-shaped back are neck features mostly found in more pricey guitars. With Sire, anyone can enjoy playing more, having this quality of instruments for their rehearsals, gigs, recordings, or hobbies.

Every year, we release fresh additions to the bass and electric guitar series that our Sire community love. We bring out those that the community asks for, be it a whole new model or a modified version of the existing. We even add finishes or enhance the features of the pieces that the community already enjoy playing. In July of this year, we revealed the 24-fret version of the our V5 bass, our new Larry Carlton signature S3 with three single-coil pickups, and new finishes for the T7 and S7 Vintage,
We are forever honored to have Marcus Miller in our team not only because he is a legend but more importantly, he and Sire share the same values when it comes to music, instruments, and respect for musicians. Seeing the potential in every individual and the heart to bring joy to them by providing quality and accessible tools, in the form of our guitars, are the foundation of our relationship
If you’re one of our frequent blog readers, you’re aware that Darrell Braun is one of the trusted critics who give us honest reviews of our electric guitars.
