aPurla Handcrafted Guitars represents a fresh new approach to guitar making.
Australian guitar maker Mitchell Morris has been hand crafting beautiful boutique guitars in Brisbane since 2011.
With his aPurla Handcrafted Guitars workshop on his peaceful 2.5 acre rainforest property at Mt Mee, he embraces a sustainable and environmentally friendly lifestyle, which is the inspiration behind aPurla Handcrafted Guitar's whole ethos.
We create 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.
