Bass of the Week: Serek Basses Lucite Lincoln

Serek Basses Lucite Lincoln Bass

I’ve always been fascinated by the old lucite basses from the ’70s, so when Serek Basses unveiled a trio of lucite instruments, my interest was piqued. This week we’re checking out the Lucite Lincoln, which they created in collaboration with fellow Chicago-based small business, Peterson Brothers Plastics.

“Petersen Bros. has done a ridiculous job here… these things look like GLASS,” Serek writes on their website.

The Lucite Lincoln features a roasted maple neck with an Indian rosewood fingerboard crafted with a compound radius. For pickups, they stuck to their “tried and true” dual Serek Singles with a four-way rotary switch that allows for soloing each pickup or playing both in either parallel or series.

“The tone on these is really unique,” they share. “They still have a ton of punch and growl, but the mids are scooped ever so slightly and the lows are more compressed which gives these basses really nice focus and sustain.”

Hear the bass in action in the hands of Jake Serek himself in this demo he made when they were introduced last year.

    Well, it may look light and invisible. ~But almost 12lbs for a single-neck BG is a good chunk to hafta haul around alla time . I think you’d REALLY have to like that look…
