For over the last 30 years Blue Note Woodworks has been mainly a guitar repair shop, with a few custom builds being done from time to time. Then early in 2011, Luthier/Owner Rob Cusumano started working on an idea of a small thin body semi-acoustic/electric bass that would produce a sound that would rival the sound of the big upright bass.

With his years of experience in building and R&D, the concept became a working reality that produced a prototype that was stunning everyone that heard or played it! “An incredible small package, with an incredible Big Sound.” Hence the birth of the Acousta-Electra Bassic Bass. From there, in the summer of 2012 Rob’s son, Seth, had an idea of building a guitar (similar in design to the Bassic Bass) but switchable from an acoustic sounding guitar to a full blown electric guitar. It was then, about 7 months later, the Acousta-Electra Hybrid “Crossover” Stereo Guitar was born.

Customer Testimonials

Truly an amazing instrument.

Geez, that beats the heck out of having to carry around the big monsters!

I love the tone of this bass man! It's dangerously close to the sound of an upright. Love the voicing, beautiful instrument!

Features a 3-Band EQ with volume (+/-20 db bass, mid, and treble controls plus an internal gain trimmer). They are specifically designed for the frequencies of acoustic guitar & bass but are also great for many other instruments. The Preamp features a special super wide band midrange filter, which is absolutely great in combination with our pickups, and it's designed to specifically match the impedance of our pickups. Its simple and noiseless circuit provides unsurpassed clarity and power and the internal gain trimmer allows you to dial in the precise amplification factor needed for your instrument.
