Sire’s T7 model takes the iconic T-style guitar formula to new heights — both sonically and playability-wise. A continuation of their relationship with jazz fusion legend Larry Carlton, Sire’s modern take on the traditional T-type keeps the legendary aesthetic intact, but comes supercharged with several contemporary features in order to appeal to today’s generation of performance-conscious players.

Key appointments include a rock-solid roasted Maple neck with a rolled-edge fingerboard, medium jumbo frets, locking tuners, brass bridge saddles and a flexible pickup set. Available at a fantastic price-point to boot, like all Sire instruments, the stunningly-crafted T7 electric guitar is a brilliant T-style alternative that perfectly blends timeless vintage charm with cutting-edge modifications.

Key Features

  • North American Alder Body — Popular timber synonymous with bolt-on guitars and basses. Offers a balanced tonal foundation for the pickups, with tight lows, bold mids and singing highs.
  • C-Shaped Roasted Maple Neck — Roasting process crystallises resins and removes all of the natural moisture retained by the neck wood, ultimately darkening the material and increasing stability for rock-solid tuning! Comes complete with a slippery satin finish.
  • 'Edgeless' Rolled Fingerboard Edges — Enhances the overall comfort and playability of the neck and makes it easier to play. What's not to like?!
  • Medium Jumbo Frets — Semi-large size offers great control under the fingers; enabling wide vibrato and pitch-perfect string bends.
  • Sire LC Super-T Pickups — Delivering that unmistakable "twang", these single-coils ensure that the distinctive voice of the definitive T-style remains; albeit with a slightly hotter, overwound quality that produces more output.
  • T7 Vintage T-Style Bridge — Boasting a beautifully-machined box-style bridge, a signature feature among '50 and '60s T-types, the T7 also sports genuine brass saddles that enhance sustain.
  • Premium Locking Tuners — Ingenious locking mechanism makes restringing easier and means less string winds around the tuning posts; resulting a better tuning stability.
  • Bone Nut — Traditional, low-friction material minimises unwanted tuning slips.
