An updated classic with chambered body and Seymour Duncan pickups.
The Bluesbird reflects Guild’s return to yet another historic solid body model. Originally released in 1970 as the solid body counterpart to the M-75 Aristocrat, the Bluesbird was subject to a few design changes over the decades.
Today’s reissue features a carved maple top and maintains many of the aesthetic traits of the M-75 Bluesbird of the late 60s. Its lightweight chambered mahogany body allows for improved resonance and unparalleled comfort, making this guitar one of the lightest in its class.
The Bluesbird features a 24-3/4 in. scale, and fast-playing vintage C shaped neck. While many of the Bluesbird's specifications remain faithful to the original model, today’s updated version comes equipped with USA-made Seymour Duncan pickups, as well as a TonePros locking tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece to offer the most versatile version of this guitar to date.
The Iced Tea Burst with a flamed maple top, Grover Sta-Tite tuning machines, and Guild's deluxe padded gig bag round out this ultimate package.

Comments about Guild Bluesbird Electric Guitar:
It's been said "Korea is the new Japan". This Korean Guild delivered in every way. It plays wonderfully, has Seymour Duncan pickups and all American parts. I bout a used Guild Blues Bird in 1975 (at age 20) and when I saw this 2017 version, I had to come back home to Guild. I was playing a Schecter A-6 which is great, but the range of sounds on this Blues Bird has caused me to make this my main axe. I ordered mine in the "antique burst" color. The pick guard comes uninstalled and it may be an addition to the black one but not so on the other two which have a tiger maple veneer. Great fretwork. Very pleased.
