Hi, 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, 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.
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 tonecolours. Passionate 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 master guitar takes about 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.
