    Looks great! Wish you would have some testing clip
     
  3. I'm seriously considering buying the TBK version of this bass, but buying a bass online scares me as well. If anyone has any experienced reviews of this bass or know anything about the Sire's return policy it would be greatly appreciated.

    I would not worry: have 2 x V7 and 1 x M3 and also have an M7 on the way, never had an issue. These basses are well made. You can check on the Sire website but return should not be an issue if you do not like. But I think you will keep... All of my Sires are great basses, each one of them!

    You are not alone, my friend ...Same story here )))
    As a student its a hard choice. I probably will have to let go one of my other basses....
    I want 5 str Sire M7, I want headless...ohhh man.
    I just got a Washburn Headless 1000, but it's neck it too big for me.

    I believe they have 30 day return policy but know this. I was scared to death about buying my sire (M3) sight unseen and I was blown away when it came in. Took it right to my guitar tech and he could find no needed adjustments flaws or problem with how it was built. He tore it apart looking for any flaw and he was amazed. I'm about to order a M7 and have no fears at all this time..

    generally they will go to a 35" on a five due to the low B reacts better

  14. How long was your M7 delivery delayed? I have a lefty M7 swamp ash on order and it is now going on close to 90 days, getting a little concerned! Thx

    I just watched this M7 review and was pleased to know that all the control knobs were metal instead of plastic.
     
  16. Thank you so much for starting this new Club I've been sorting through the other thread on a regular basis for more information and pictures on these I really appreciate it enjoy your new basses!

  17. For the couple of guys who want a 34" mensure 5-string-- have you taken a look at Yamaha's TRBX 505? It's the bass I was strongly considering for a "first 5-string" before the M7 came out. There are some similarities in the features, you'd just be making do without the coil-splitting, Mid-sweep control, and figured top...

    ...just a thought!

    Are the side dots (fret markers on the side of the neck at the 3rd, 5th, ... frets) on the M7 the same size and look as the regular V7? I have not seen a profile shot of the M7 neck yet.

    I was seriously considering one until I was told they were not making one with a maple board. I was told that was a Custom Option not available and that wasn't going to happen. So I moved on with my lips poked out and then Bam. MTD Kingston came out with their Super 5. Basically the same config as what I was looking for and has an option of rosewood or maple board so I'm getting the bass I want with the maple board and it's not a Custom Option. If Sire had one with the maple board they would have gotten my money first.
