If I were to build myself a 5-string bass, THIS WOULD BE IT. Holy crap, two Serek Singles in the P-bass position pushes some serious air. The 4-way rotary switch adds a ton of versatility, allowing either pickup in solo, or both in parallel or series. The Ebony board adds some really nice snap to the attack and this bass was just begging for Dunlop flatwound strings. The acrylic Splotchy Tort pickguard over the calming Desert Sand nitro finish ties it all together.
“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. Pickup options are endless, but I find this bass tends to enjoy a more versatile, 2-pickup configuration such as our Serek Singles!”
