What We Think

If you love the idea of a shorter scale instrument, but have always found true short scale basses a little too cramped, Jake Serek's 32" scale Midwestern is the goldilocks bass for you. Short enough to make it easy and fun to navigate the neck, but comfortable enough to make you question whether it's shorter at all! This bass features Jake's Serek Singles, crisp, clear, vintage-voiced single coils with a tone all their own. 

Manufacturer's Description from Serek

The Midwestern 2 takes a more modern approach than its sibling, the original Midwestern bass. Updates include a sleek new design with body contours and a lower cutaway for full access to 21 frets. The Midwestern 2 is made up of a lightweight Mahogany body and the same 30.5″ scale Mahogany set neck found on the Midwestern. This bass can also be made in 32” scale, and with either 4 or 5 strings for those looking to extend their sonic range. Pickup options are endless, but I find this bass tends to enjoy a more versatile, 2-pickup configuration such as our Serek Singles!
