The ice tea burst Bluesbird - Newark St. Collection from Guild Guitars is a chambered solid body electric guitar with a glossy polyurethane finish. The instrument was originally released in 1970 as the solid body counterpart to the M-75 Aristocrat and features a lightweight chambered mahogany body, which offers improved resonance and unparalleled comfort. One of the lightest in its class, the Bluesbird's 24.75" scale and fast-playing vintage C shaped neck is a joy to play.

For electronics, the Bluesbird utilizes a Seymour Duncan '59 SH-1N humbucker in the neck and a JB SH-4 humbucker in the bridge. Additional features include a rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl block inlay, Grover Sta-Tite tuning machines, a 3-way pickup selector, and tone & volume controls for both the neck and bridge pickups. The Bluesbird ships with a truss adjustment tool and a deluxe gig bag.
