One Guitar. Endless Tones
The word Khrosis comes from the word explaining the process of a Chameleon chaining its colors. The Khrosis is a true tone changing machine. Great for the studio or the player who can’t make up their mind. Each khrosis pickguard can be swapped out in a matter of minutes thanks to our quick connect pickguard system that requires no soldering. The guards are held in place by thread inserts installed into the body and stainless steel machine screws.
The Khrosis was created to feature and house our own Porter Pickups and be a solid instrument that you can arm with countless tones for any situation.

Wood and Wood Regulations All Porter guitars are hand selected woods and many times we offer high end custom shop quality within the different price offerings. Please note with some regulations on international woods, all non USA orders will include only woods which aren’t subject to export issues. Please contact us prior to ordering to make sure we give you the available alternatives.
Finish Notes: We currently use a combination of dyes and stains for maples and transparent colors. We frequently use multiple oil based and water-based finishes for health and safety reasons. We do not offer other finishes expect by contact work which will add significant lead time to your build in addition to costs.
