What’s beyond the Flame Maple?

Black is classic but transparent black is something. That’s why two of our Larry Carlton signature electric guitars possess the upgraded look bearing the flamed maple top in black color, our traditional S-shaped Sire S7 and one of Sire’s latest releases— the T7. They say that the pattern is more similar to tiger stripes. Since their launch, they have been hitmakers in terms of sound and aesthetics. Now, let’s go deep dive into the features of these two and find out why guitar players of different genres love them.


Evidently, both our S-style and T-style are enhanced with the flame maple on the body to make them look more fascinating on and off stage. To follow, their necks are C-shaped roasted hard maple with rolled fretboard edges offering the smoothness and ease when switching chords and frets. Then, the rest of their neck features like the string nuts, inlays, and neck joints are delicately installed to fit the technical requirements of each model.


As for the hardware, the T7 FM has almost the same configuration as the S7 FM, not to mention the efficient Sire Premium Locking Tuners to avoid tonal slips. Now, the exciting part is the electronics because the Sire S7 uses the traditional Super-ST pickup set basic controls and knobs while the T7 uses a more complex but specific configuration to match the LC Super-M Pickup set (Zebra type).



Take a look at the reviews of Jon is just too LouD!! on YouTube for better appreciation.

Shortly after the launch of our former flag bearer, V7 and the rest of the V series, one of the next models that came up were the Ms, in which M was not officially defined but in the essence of the characteristics of the basses built in this line, we can tell that they look “modern” in style and performance level.

The Most Talked about Part of Sire Guitars, What is it?

Our bass and electric guitars are well-known in the industry and community for the Rolled Fretboard Edges- a neck feature that our fan base says we do better than the others. This characteristic is a very good addition to a guitar’s neck because it adds to the comfort and playability of the instrument. Also, having it gives the impression that the guitar feels like it has been used overtime that’s why the edges have become smooth.
