What We Think

Jake Serek has done it again with another killer Midwestern 2. Combining the slim body shape and the shortened 32" scale with Curtis Novak's powerful Thunderbird pickups this bass sounds twice as big as a looks and feels! The neck position is warm and wooly, filling up every nook and cranny with sustain and rich tone and the bridge position brims with midrange bark and is sure to cut through even the most dense mix. And the two-tone sunburst (based on a particularly handsome non-reverse Thunderbird) is rich, dark, and soaked through with a well aged vibe!

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.
