Hi, I'm Viktor Fogas, a Hungarian luthier and classical guitar maker. I build modern lattice braced and double-top classical concert guitars with great volume, excellent playability and exceptionally beautiful tone. My guitars are used by many professional guitarists in Hungary and abroad.
Through the years I developed a very successful asymmetric lattice bracing system. Double-top soundboards made with Nomex are also available. Soundport, armrest, ergonomic neck, radiused fingerboard, optional short scales, twelve hole bridge and stainless steel frets are standard on all of my guitars. Elevated neck and double sides are also added on my "Grande" models.
My guitars are loud, and, at the same time, produce extremely beautiful classical guitar sound, opening up new depths of various heart touching tonecolours. I prefer rich overtones and responsiveness, so a Spanish-like character and modern power and balance are united in my instruments.
I build about 8 guitars a year as a full time builder. The construction of one of my guitars takes more than 200 working hours, plus the drying times of glues and French polish. The tremendous work invested into each instrument ensures the outstanding quality and value of my guitars. Still, my prices are quite affordable, between 4.000 - 6.000 EUR.
Take a look at the detailed photo galleries and other information about my guitars.
