Hello TB, I have a BRAND NEW (just came in the mail 10/09) Sire V7 Vintage 5 string Ash model. I went a bit overboard and ordered 3 Sire basses, 2x 5 strings and a 4 string. Unfortunately for me I don't need a 3rd 5 string so I am going to bite the bullet and sale this one. This bass is a bit warmer sounding than the V7 5 Ash model I have and the string spacing is a bit tighter. You can check the specs on the bass at the sire website. The bass is INCREDIBLE and sounds redonkulous, I'd keep it if I didn't already have 2 other 5ers. I'm selling this bad boy around the price I paid for it since it's brand new, plus these are taking close to 6-8 weeks to get ordered and to your door, so here's to getting around the long wait time. I had to wait 8 weeks for this bad boy to only turn around and sale it. It will be packaged and shipped in the original box, plus I'll throw in a 3XL Sire Black t-shirt along with it (they gave me one since I bothered the hell out of them about updating me on my order). The colors in the pictures are hard to get accurate, so I placed one a little darker and another a little lighter to give you an idea of somewhere in the middle to shoot for. $650 Shipped No trades.
