Midwestern

a short-scale powerhouse

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!

We hand-wind many of our own pickups like this Serek B90, modeled after the famous P90 guitar pickup. Did you know you can also opt for a hum-cancelling dummy coil hidden under the pickguard?!
