The aPurla team; Layne and Mitchell Morris.
aPurla Handcrafted Guitars represents a fresh new approach to guitar making.
Hand crafting beautiful boutique guitars in Brisbane since 2011.
With the aPurla Handcrafted Guitars work shop in the centre of Dayboro and our peaceful 2.5 acre rainforest property at Mt Mee, Brisbane Australia, we embrace a sustainable and environmentally friendly lifestyle.
We are passionate recyclers, striving to maintain a responsible attitude toward the environment and respect the land we are the temporary custodians of.
We work with our planet to keep music alive, creating unique guitars and custom instruments from reclaimed timbers, recycled materials and sustainably sourced local trees that we collect ourselves.
From tree to tunes, from trash to treasure our handmade guitars are full of life, history and soul.
Our attitude of innovation and awareness is reflected in our unique and beautiful hand made guitars.
We repair, design and create special instruments from the ground up for clients.
Original designs or adaptations of existing designs can be made to your specifications.
"We believe in living simply. Staying connected to nature, maintaining integrity & finding joy in our work, while making creations that are well-designed and affordable".
"Collecting the timbers ourselves & seeing where they came from is really impactful. It inspires us to do the best we can to honour the memory of that tree & bring out all its true beauty, so that beauty will live on through music.
All our timbers are sustainably harvested, either from problem trees that were removed & would have been mulch, or reclaimed timbers that would have been trash, they all have a story".
