Every younger sibling looks up to their older kin at some point in their childhood. I can remember when I was about 5 or 6, my older sister, then about 9 or 10, had a sticker collection, and to me it was just about the coolest thing imaginable. Naturally, as annoying younger brothers are wont to do, I had to copy her and have my own! We would go to the local party supply store and walk wide-eyed down the sticker aisle. There were fuzzies and foilys and oilys, dinosaurs and unicorns, oh my! I particularly remember the bold and vivid colors of the Lisa Frank collections of the early 90’s. Who could resist bright pink dolphins and dogs on rainbow ice cream cones!
So why am I telling you this? We recently dug up some waterslide decal sheets at our shop, and with the help of Andy, our printer/designer friend next door (www.hd-design-printing.com), we decided to go a little nuts.
The result was a Brilliant Pearl finished Midwestern, with a Rainbow Jungle pickguard and STICKERS EVERYWHERE. The “stickers” are actually all waterslide decals that are safe and sound under the semi-gloss top coat. I really don’t know what else to say about this instrument, but I guess it kind of speaks for itself doesn’t it!
***BONUS*** Custom cable by Ray Raydecker and Lisa Frank coloring book will be included!!!
“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!”
