  • Comments:

    These superb Oldiges guitars sound and feel very much in the Hauser I character but with new vitality. Gerhard Oldiges has had extensive access to research and analyse fine examples of 1930's & 1940's Hauser I guitars on which these are very closely reproduced. The sound captures the essence of Hauser I guitars with low body air frequency; commonly F to F# and sometimes down to E, making them very deep and resonant. The basses are rich, deep and magical; the treble sweet and singing. The balance is also very good with plenty of power and volume. If you want a Hauser guitar without paying a fortune, faithful to the sound, feel and appearance of the 1930's and 40's originals, you will struggle to find better than these handsome Gerhard Oldiges guitars. Many makers make a Hauser copy or replica guitar; sometimes like physical clones - but few sound like these.

"I would love to go through the process of buying a good guitar from Miles at KGCL because he really knows his stuff. But actually, I make them and so enjoy seeing my guitars amongst such a very fine selection of extremely good instruments. I feel very honoured that they are presented at Kent Guitar Classics."
