Foggy Mountain Guitars started business in 2004 with one overriding goal; bring guitars to market that professional players would be happy to play and offer them at prices that most players could afford. First, we wanted the value of our guitars to set us apart from other manufacturers.
The connection with Mason Williams came about because we saw a void in the mid-priced classical guitar market. Mason was the obvious choice as an artist to partner with and the relationship has been terrific. The 'Mason Williams Signature Line' of classical guitars offers three distinct models from the value-priced 'Signature' model (about $500 street price) to the professional 'Concert' model, (about $1,000 street price); to finally, the 'Classical Gas Commemorative' model (about $1,200 street price), which is a limited edition (only 1968 will be produced) reproduction of the guitar Mason used to record the most radio-played instrumental of all time, Classical Gas.
Along the way we've been blessed to meet other artists who have come aboard as endorsers such as Jim Stafford. Most may know Jim as a comedian, but he is a world-class guitarist and if you haven't seen him perform live you better schedule a trip to Branson, MO. and see the entertainer who has been voted 'Branson's Best' for many years.
We love what we do, we love helping people begin their music hobby and we love working with those at the professional level who make their living with their music. If we can satisfy their demanding requirements, we feel certain we can please guitarists of all levels of expertise around the country.
