    Up for sale is my 2020 Serek Midwestern 2 5-string in beautiful Aged Cherry nitrocellulose finish! Life takes turns and I am currently in need of the money.

    A few more details...

    - 30.5-inch scale
    - glued/set neck
    - mahogany body and neck
    - asymmetrical neck shape (FEELS FANTASTIC)
    - wenge fretboard
    - stainless steel frets
    - bone nut
    - Serek Single pickup with dummy coil under the pickguard. Tone knob is a push-pull and switches between single-coil (down) and humcanceling (up)
    - strung with La Bella rounds, low B up to G
    - Dunlop straplock buttons
    - ships to lower 48 CONUS with Serek gigbag

    This was a custom order I made with Jake... ordered in December 2019, took possession June 2020. Never gigged with super-low playing time.

    It has a couple of minor bumps on the body, but nothing huge by any means. Will upload photos of those soon.

    Not interested in trades on this one, thanks anyway.

    If I can answer any questions, please let me know. PM me if you like. Thanks for your attention!

    Just curious, is the tuning low B>G or low E>C?

    I really want one of these basses. I've watched a bunch of videos, but haven't seen anyone EQ'ing it for a round and warm sound. Looking for that phat reggae bass sound. Does this bass have that tone option in the adjustment?

    Oh, absolutely! In this case of this bass having only one pickup, I like putting it into humcanceling mode and rolling off the tone for a reggae tone. Switching to single-coil gives it tone a little more focus/clarity/edge.

    But with Serek offering up so many different pickup options, combinations and positioning, you can easily build a bass if there's a specific direction or purpose you're looking to knock out.
