What We Think

At the core of Serek's offerings is the, always great, original Midwestern. This one features Curtis Novak's BS-DS pickup, with powerful, round tones that sound thick and vocal with the tone up and dubby and warm with the tone rolled off. The BS-DS is also coil tapped for the "Dark Star" sound, with extra treble and more midrange cut to get through the densest of mixes. No matter what your approach, you're sure to find a sound you love in this playable, beautiful bass from Serek.

Manufacturer's Description from Serek

The Midwestern is a short-scale powerhouse that is compact in size, but does not lack in tone. Think P-bass meets EB-0. The Midwestern is made up of a lightweight Mahogany body and a 30.5″ scale Mahogany set neck making it effortless to play, and easy to travel with. Inspired by vintage Midwest-bred designs, this is our simplest and most utilitarian offering. However, updated with modern hardware and electronics as well as effortless playability, you won’t believe this is just a humble short scale bass!
