MARCUS VINTAGE JAZZ
JAZZ BASS TYPE
Jazz bass type is the industry standard bass model with its signature vintage sound. This is an all around bass that is suitable for fingering, slap and all techniques and style of playing. With both classic and modern feel and design, this new base can produce the desired sound for any genres of music from soft to strong metal grunge music.
BODY MATERIAL – SWAMP ASH / NORTH AMERICAN ALDER
Premium swamp ash tone wood is usually found in higher priced instruments. Swamp ash tone wood is known to produce a well balanced tone. It is highly resonant and offers a nice balance of pleasant highs, firm lows, and a slightly scooped midrange which is great for slap playing. The characteristics of this wood enable players to emulate Marcus Miller’s tone a step further.
NORTH AMERICAN ALDER
A popular choice for most bass guitars is the North American Alder. Other basses at this price range commonly use Basswood or Agathis tone wood but Sire Guitars chooses the traditional North American Alder which is known for its strong clear full- bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows that is perfect for the traditional jazz bass sound.

Nut is one of the most important parts of the guitar that influences the performance, playability, and tone of the instrument. Depending on the quality of the material and elasticity, the nut can improve the sound or degrade the sound. Although bone nut is more costly and harder to work with, it is considered to deliver more balanced, clearer and smoother tone than plastic or eurite material.
