Guild has given its Bluesbird model an update in its new lightweight reissue of the guitar.
From the company:
The Bluesbird reflects Guild’s return to yet another historic solidbody model. Originally released in 1970 as the solidbody 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” 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. Grover Sta-Tite tuning machines and Guild's deluxe padded gig bag round out this ultimate package.
The Bluesbird is available in a sleek Jet Black, and Iced Tea Burst with a flamed maple top.
STREET PRICES: Bluesbird Iced Tea Burst, $999; Jet Black, $939
