Gerhard Oldiges started making guitars in the late 1970s while still a student at university. On graduation he started an apprenticeship with a guitar maker, and then in 1985 went to work in guitar repairs. In 1988 he attened a guitar buidling course with Jose Romanllios. The next year he passed his mastership examinations and opened his own workshop. He continued his contact with Romanillos and has assisted on his guitar making courses. His own guitars are highly traditional in construction, although he does not rule out contemporary developments in guitar design.
