"Serek Basses is announcing its newest model today, the Midwestern 2. Jake Serek, founder of Serek Basses, will unveil the Midwestern 2 at Summer NAMM in Nashville this July.

New features include a lower cutaway, new sleek pickguard design, and 21 frets. When designing the original Midwestern, I had to sacrifice some fret access to maintain the symmetrical, vintage-inspired body shape. The Midwestern 2 gives the player full access to all 21 frets.

The Midwestern 2 keeps all of the basic dimensions of its predecessor, The Midwestern, intact. It still features a 30.5" scale, 1 5/8" nut width, and a vintage profiled neck. It is still made with light-weight Mahogany and outfitted with Hipshot USA Hardware.

There are a few different pickup options for the Midwestern 2. It comes stock with a Guild BS-1 BiSonic pickup (Curtis Novak BS-DS available upon request), but will also be available in a 2-pickup configuration featuring Serek Basses very own hand-wound pickups.

The Midwestern 2 is available in three finishes (Satin Golden Mahogany, Satin Aged Cherry, and Satin Faded Black) and comes with a custom-embroidered Levy's gig bag. Starting price for the Midwestern 2 is $1750 US. The basses will be available for pre-order Mid-July.
