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.

Khrosis Elite – Starting at $3,499
Khrosis Elite Guitars are the best of the best. We use the highest figured woods, rare and unique finds and more to create these models. These are built from reserve pieces we have here in the shop or that we personally go select ourselves. Elite models are designed and created specifically by our team. No two are alike. What will you dream up?
Q: Why a “Starting at price?”
A: Because Elite models are so unique, there’s too many potential options to list. They are our Custom Shop essentially. We search high and low for woods that make your Khrosis Elite special. We don’t charge extra for Gold or Black Hardware, Custom Pickup configurations and many of your unique ideas to throw in these guitars. Though we try our best to include several things in the elite pricing, there are times many rare exotic woods will increase this price. We rely on 10+ years of supplier relationships to make your guitar extra special.
You’re also welcome to contact us and talk about what Elite Woods we have here in the shop. We keep a limited stash for special projects that can help with starting the design process.
