Sven Petter Gerdin (1849-1927) had a workshop in Åmål (Sweden) with some employees making both guitars and strings between 1888-1912.
Roger Häggström, who has done some research in these makers believe that Karl Blomqvist made the bridges for the Gerdin guitars.
This guitar has the biggest bridge I have ever seen. The heavy bridge and very thick top make this guitar quite unfit for nylon strings and it was probably intended for steel strings.
The guitar is in need of repair but the question is if it is worth it. I consider this a nice thing to have hanging on the wall, not a true musical instrument.
