Up for grabs is a very special 5-string Midwestern 2 bass custom-built for Derek Frank. Derek has quite a career as a professional bassist. His most recent projects have included Shania Twain, Gwen Stefani, and Kelly Clarkson. He also performs with his own group in the LA area.
The bass has a 32″ medium scale with and Ebony fingerboard inlaid with our signature Bowties. The pickups are Nordstrand Big Blades and the finish is a Satin Metallic Firemist Silver with Black Competition Stripes. Very striking!
Derek has kept this bass in mint condition. The protective film is still on the control cover!
“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!”
