Guild Bluesbird


Unleash Your Inner Soul with the Guild Bluesbird, the ultimate blues-inspired guitar designed for those who want to take their music to the next level.



The Guild Bluesbird electric guitar is an American-made instrument that stands out with its sleek design and unmatched tone. Designed in the 1960s, it has become a classic among musicians, appreciated for its unique sound and comfortable playability.

Construction and Design

The design of the Bluesbird is based on the Les Paul, which the Guild team improved by adding a lighter body, a thinner neck profile, and dual humbuckers. The instrument has a single-cutaway body with a carved maple top and a mahogany back. The set mahogany neck is capped with a rosewood fingerboard (22 frets) and has a scale length of 24 3/4 inches.

One of the most striking visual features of the Bluesbird is the headstock that has the Guild logo on it, a look reminiscent of the old Fender offset-headstock design incorporated into the original model. The guitar also features nickel hardware, including a Guild Vibrato tailpiece, an adjustable Tune-O-Matic bridge, and Grover Sta-Tite tuners.


The Guild Bluesbird has a unique tonal character attributed to its dual humbucking pickups. The pickups are specially designed with Alnico V magnets that deliver a full and warm tone, ideal for blues and rock music. The pickups can be easily accessed through the three-way selector switch on the top edge of the guitar, allowing the player to alternate between the neck and bridge pickups or use both simultaneously for a fuller sound.

The guitar’s tone is further enhanced by the Vibrato tailpiece system, which adds a subtle modulation for expressive and more nuanced playing. The instrument also has a distinct sustain and dynamic responsiveness that makes it a preferred choice for guitarists who love to play with a clean and clear sound.


The Guild Bluesbird electric guitar is known for its comfortable feel and ease of playability. The slim neck profile allows for smooth playing, and the low action provides excellent control over the fretboard. The guitar’s lightweight construction makes it easy to maneuver, and the single-cutaway design provides easy access to higher frets, ideal for lead guitar playing.


The Guild Bluesbird electric guitar is a classic instrument that has stood the test of time. Its unique design, enhanced by a full and warm tone and playability, makes it an ideal guitar for blues and rock musicians. With its striking looks and unmatched sound, the Guild Bluesbird is a must-have for any guitar player looking for a top-of-the-line instrument.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What unique features set the Guild Bluesbird apart from other electric guitars, and how can they be properly maintained and adjusted by a knowledgeable technician?

The Guild Bluesbird is a high-end electric guitar that stands out from its competitors due to several unique features. Firstly, it boasts an all-mahogany body, which provides a rich and warm tone that is distinct from the brighter tones of maple or alder bodies commonly found in other guitars. This mahogany construction also gives the Bluesbird excellent resonance and sustain. Another standout feature is its vintage-style humbucker pickups, which offer a classic sound with plenty of output and warmth. These pickups are also wound to provide balanced output between the neck and bridge positions, making for a versatile tonal palette. The Guild Bluesbird's set mahogany neck adds to its overall tone and feel, providing a comfortable playing experience with excellent sustain and resonance. The neck is finished in a smooth satin that is both durable and pleasing to the touch. To ensure proper maintenance and adjustment of these unique features, it is highly recommended to have your Bluesbird serviced by a knowledgeable technician. A professional will be able to set up the guitar's intonation, action, and string height, as well as adjust the pickup heights and electronics for optimal performance. Additionally, regular care and maintenance practices such as changing strings regularly, cleaning the fretboard and body with a soft cloth, and avoiding exposure to extreme temperatures or humidity can help prolong the life of your Bluesbird and preserve its unique tone and feel. With proper care and attention, your Guild Bluesbird will continue to provide years of exceptional playing experience.
