Had I been introduced to Sire basses based on price alone, I may have been very skeptical about how good they might be. Fortunately, I got a chance to see and play the bass before I was told how much it costs. My take on this bass is, this is a very, very good jazz bass. Although the price is amazingly affordable, this is not an entry-level instrument. I would proudly play this instrument on any stage in the world without reservation. It sounds and looks that good! Marcus Miller and Sire have managed to put together a pricing model that will allow virtually anyone to be able to get a high quality, good playing and excellent sounding bass without breaking the bank.
