New cases fit most electric or acoustic guitars with flexible padding blocks inspired by camera cases.

New York, NY (April 12, 2013) -- Bowoo NYC has launched, founded by a NYC musician/designer with the goal of designing the best guitar case in the world.

Bowoo Guitar Case is designed with the protection of a hard case with half the weight and the portability and flexibility of a gig bag. The cases are designed in New York City and handcrafted in Vermont, and are 100% USA Made.


• The exterior of the case is made with CORDURA Fabric. It's durable and resistant to abrasions, tears and scuffs, and water.
• The Interior of the case is a soft and versatile material of which anything with velcro can be attached onto. A guitar neck rest block is included with every case.
• Details areas such as the case handles, headstock and soundhole paddings, shoulder strap paddings, are all made with genuine soft suede.
• Durable Construction with reinforced seams, metal hardware, double layered reinforced suede handles. Headstock and soundhole areas are all double padded with suede.
• Highly Protective rigid internal frame, abrasions resistant exterior, and a padded interior of 20mm of protection.
• Truly Portable strap that is interchangeable to either double shoulder backpack straps or single one-shoulder straps, so you don't have to buy extra straps. One strap, two ways.
• Bowoo Guitar Case will fit most guitars from an electric guitar up to a full size dreadnaught. Inspired by camera bag designs, the additional padding blocks will help to fit your guitar whatever the size may be.
• The exterior measures: 43.5"L x 17"W x 7.5"H
• The interior measures: 42.5"L x 16.5"W x 5.5"H
• Weights: 78 oz.

Additional padding blocks can be purchased to better fit smaller guitars.

Rig Rundown: Wolf Alice's Joff Oddie

Joff Oddie shows PG his own Jag-Master creation and then plasters it with pedals bending (and distorting) space and time.

Listening to the tidal wave in “Giant Peach,” the riotous “Moaning Lisa Smile,” or the punked-up “Play the Greatest Hits,” it’s hard to imagine Wolf Alice as an acoustic duo. Then talk to Joff Oddie about his integral use of effects—“These pedals can do such crazy things; to not do crazy things with things that can do crazy things seems odd”—and the band’s origin story becomes even more improbable. But it’s true: Wolf Alice started with guitarist/singer Ellie Rowsell and guitarist Oddie playing acoustic-folk music during open-mic nights in North London pubs.
