Adding to the company’s line of travel guitars, Woodpecker has unveiled the new 31” Woodpecker Travel Koa. This small guitar is made out of all solid acacia (European Koa wood).

Boulder Creek Unveils the Travel Bass
The Dual Port System lets you hear more of what you are playing while the increased soundboard area produces greater projection.
San Jose, CA (December 8, 2015) -- When you need big bass sound in a small package, think of the Boulder Creek Travel Bass. Boulder Creek’s Suspended Bracing System makes it possible for the bass to product fat, full sustain, richness of tone and addictive playability.
The Dual Port System lets you hear more of what you are playing while the increased soundboard area produces greater projection. The absence of a center soundhole reduces or cancels out feedback issues while still maintaining a fat, warm, bass sound.
It is very versatile with its longer scale which is the most popular feature that bassists point out. “It is fun and easy to play because you don’t feel cramped, and the sound will surprise you” - Chris Donohue (Tom Jones).
It comes with Aquila Thunder Gut strings. Tone woods consist of a solid Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides. The bass comes configured with Boulder Creek’s UK-300T Preamp and Tuner.
