Midwestern 2

the lightweight short scale

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. This bass can also be made in 32” scale, and with either 4 or 5 strings for those looking to extend their sonic range. Pickup options are endless, but I find this bass tends to enjoy a more versatile, 2-pickup configuration such as our Serek Singles!

Serek handwound pickups

Sleek Body Design

The Midwestern 2 carves new paths from its old-school sibling. With body contours and easy access to 21 frets, this bass feels like your favorite old sneaker, but plays like that really fancy boutique bass you maxed out your credit card to buy.

Serek Hand-Wound Pickups

Serek Singles are my favorite pickup choice for the Midwestern 2. Tonally similar to a Ric Hi-Gain, these pickups are growly and throaty with a fundamental unheard of in most short scale basses.

The 5 String Midwestern 2

Don’t forget! The Midwestern 2 is also available as a 5 string bass with either a 30.5″ or 32″ scale length. Don’t let the size fool you, this B string is BIG.
