  • 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 is very authentic Hauser with body air frequency just above E, making it very deep and resonant. The basses are rich, magical and the treble sweet and singing - remarkable for such a new guitar. 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."
