Guild Newark St Bluesbird

Guild Newark St Bluesbird Iced Tea Burst

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 1960’s…

The Guild Newark St Bluesbird has a lightweight chambered Mahogany body which 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.

The Guild Newark St. Collection marks the return of classic Guild electric guitars and basses from the 1950s and ’60s — once again putting the distinctive Guild styling and voice that helped shape popular music into the hands of today’s musicians.
