What We Think

Our 'white-out' Midwestern was an immediate shop favorite! Beloved so much by the folks at Serek they were sad to see it go. Like all of Jake Serek's work, the fit and finish is delightful; the neck shape is deep without being demanding and leaves you enough meat to really dig in. Thundering, fundamental rich tone comes blasting out of the single middle-mounted pickup while retaining plenty of clarity for the kind of cut you need. Just like Serek, we'll be sad to see this one go!

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!
