I'm Viktor Fogas, a Hungarian luthier and classical guitar maker. I build modern lattice braced classical concert guitars with great volume, excellent playability and exceptionally beautiful tone. My instruments are designed to perform successfully on today's professional concerts and guitar competitions as well as in the studio. I've been building guitars for more than 10 years, and my work is gaining an increasing international recognition.
Through the years I have developed a unique asymmetric lattice bracing system, which is very successful, and is accompanied by all features a contemporary guitarist is looking for. Soundport, armrest, thin & fast neck, optional short scales, radiused fingerboard, twelve hole bridge, stainless steel frets and double sides are now standard on all of my guitars. Elevated neck is also added on my new "Grande" models.
This system raises volume dramatically, and, at the same time, produces an extremely beautiful classical guitar sound, opening up new depths of various heart touching tones and colours. Passionate Spanish-like character and modern power and balance are united in my instruments.
I build about 8 guitars a year. The construction of each guitar takes about 200 working hours plus the drying times of glues and French polish.
