Metamorphosis Guitar & Bass Series

aPurla kicked it up a notch in 2018 with our series of sustainable guitars AND for the first time ever bass guitars. All the instruments were made using sustainably sourced or recycled local timbers and top quality parts. Many are made from Aussie timbers like Bunya pine or Tasmanian and Qld Black wood, but some are made using pest timber species like Leopard wood and fitted with our brand new custom hand wound aPurla pickups!

We guarantee that we never ever use clear cutting to get our beautiful tone woods, that is our promise to you, to our planet and to our future generations.

All the instruments pictured are for sale and on display at the Australian Academy of Music.
