acoustic grand auditorium guitar with SIB electronics and cutaway, sunburst
The Sire R3GSVS grand auditorium guitar features a solid spruce top and laminated mahogany sides and back. Sire is the new standard in great playing, great sounding amplified guitars! The solid construction is completely focussed on great playability and an even better sound.
The R3G has a compact, very comfortable body with cutaway. The sound of this size with a solid spruce top and mahogany sides and back offer bold lows, a proper mid-range and clear high frequencies.
The pickup system is very natural sounding and very easy to use.
The Sire SIB (Simple Is Better) pickup system with onboard pre-amp combines an under saddle piezo pickup with an internal microphone. The discrete controls in the side of the guitar are a volume control, a balance control for the internal microphone and piezo, EQ searcher.
The impeccable wood selection, excellent workmanship and innovative electronics are already revered by all Sire Marcus Miller fans. Sire is the very successful builder of Sire Marcus Miller electric basses in which excellent quality and affordable prices go together well. Now, Sire has done this to the acoustic guitar. There's no looking back!
