Zerberus / Chronos / 2017 / Onyx Fantastico / Guitar For Sale
IMAGINE: You could be the first lucky devil in the whole world who owns and plays a Zerberus-Guitars Chronos with real Onyx Fantastico top.
Maybe later there might be some more Chronos with Onyx top, but you have serial number #001. No one can take this from you.
If you need versatility - if you love sustain - if you are into guitars that have character - if you love to play a guitar that you won´t find at every corner - you really should take a closer look :)
This is the first of my new Chronos Models available for sales.
Fresh from the NAMM Show !!! I unveiled my new Zerberus-Guitars Chronos models at the show, but because of temporary export documents for samples, I had to take them back home with me to Germany and now they are back in my showroom and available for testing and sales. The new Chronos guitars with their tops made of real GEMSTONE got a lot of interests by the media and also by customers who visited our booth to check out that unique guitars. We were honored to present our Guitars at the Media-Preview-Day at the NAMM Show. What you see here is Chronos Onyx Fantastico #001.
The top of this unique specimen is made of 0.2" genuine Onyx Fantastico "Red Light" - no airbrush or wood - REAL Gemstone!
The body is a chambered light Mahogany body (with 3-layer hologram pinstripe) and the neck is a hard Maple neck with Ebony stripes and Rosewood fretboard with 25.5" scale. I have equipped the Chronos with Ratio Locking tuners and a Black Tusq nut by GraphTech. Amazing precision there at GraphTech :) The pickups are a set of Kammerstein Quadrail humbuckers. Each of them separately can be split into single-coil by pulling the potentiometers. That makes the Chronos a very versatile guitar that is perfect for a really wide range of styles. Thanks to the 4-blade-coil design the Chronos does not have any hum or noise while in single-coil-mode. The Gemstone top offers a very distinctive character with awesome sustain and makes every Chronos absolutely unique, second to none and unforgeable. The Chronos comes including a very good Zerberus hard case and certificate.
The weight of the Chronos is only around 8lb what means that this guitar is not heavier than a standard solid-body wood guitar.
If you have any questions, please let me know and I will be at your service.
Zerberus Guitars, Germany
All custom guitars are completely made by only one luthier - ME.
Zerberus-Guitars is some kind of a One-Man-Show and it´s only me in the workshop.
I do all the works - drive arround to find amazing long time stored lumber - saw out the bodies and necks -shape that all by hand without using CNC machines - equipp the hardware - install the electronis - paint the guitars and so on......I also take the photos and make the website.
No step of my work is done by someone else.
That makes the guitars very unique.
Building such a handmade unique specimen takes at least 6 months.
For making my custom guitars, I don´t use computer controled CNC-machines.
I do all the routings and carvings by hand and so I am not restricted to any standard designs.
I come from a very musical family.
My grandfather played trumpet in a band and my father is a professional rock´n roll guitarist in my region.
On the other hand my ancestors have been very skilled craftsmen who worked as makers of wood cartweels (Grand-grandfather) and wood barrels (Grandfather).
My father does not have a hand for woodworking :)
But he is a lifetime Rock guitarist.
So in my person the two rows come together being a rock guitarist that also loves woodworking :)
I have inherited some woodworking tools from my grand-grandfather that I still use when building my handcrafted custom guitars.
When I was 14, I have built my first guitar with the help of an old luthier.
Later in 1992 I had my own design company and I specialised in guitar design (have played in several bands this time).
Later in 2002 I founded my very own guitar company Zerberus-Guitars and fullfiled one of my biggest childhood dreams with that.
Is it your dream to own an instrument that is the only one of its kind on the planet, as individual as you - the owner, an instrument that is lovingly handcrafted, using selected timbers and the finest hardware, to satisfy your very own aesthetics, needs and personal preferences?
In my Custom Shop, I specialize in carefully hand-building the kinds of guitars and basses that reflect the DNA of their players. I do not employ CNC-machines which mechanically churn out half-finished guitar bodies every few minutes. By contrast, all carving, assembly and finishing is performed by one skilled craftsman, so that my guitars can not be clones of any models made previously.
Each instrument leaving my Custom Shop is a unique specimen. And not being restricted to proprietary designs, I am able to develop very individual guitars and basses in response to the originality and inspiration of our clients.
