Acoustic Traveller Guitar - Aurora

Aurora, the dream catcher, our sleeping beauty...

Some may say that she’s a dreamer, but she brought our dreams of creating a great quality sustainable guitar to life. 

And hey, we’ve got nothing against dreamers.

She was hand crafted from aged Australian timbers that were recycled from antique iconic Queenslander homes. 

It was from these that we recycled the large hardwood beam that was to be her back and sides. 

 

Her neck was made using a cut of carefully selected recycled quarter-sawn hardwood from another piece of timber in a Queenslander home. Her fingerboard was recycled from an old guitar, it was then reversed and in-layed with an off cut of flamed maple, featuring her aPurla designed ‘dream catcher’ that, like a tattoo on the soul reflects her free spirited ways. 

Her sound board was made from a large Australian pine beam with amazingly close growth rings.

She features high-end long lasting hardware, water based lacquers, high quality handmade scratch plate and a TUSQ nut (synthetic bone) to ensure an animal free, cruelty free, environmentally friendly product that sounds as good as it looks. She is also fitted with Evo gold fret wire, a copper alloy that contains no nickel, and with a LR Baggs Lyric Pickup, she's the complete package. 


The utmost care and attention to detail has been maintained in her crafting to ensure enjoyable and long lasting playability.
