The Bluesbirds are Les Paul equivalent guitars (as is fairly clear from the look and specifications) manufactured here in the USA. Originally produced in the '70s this model was reintroduced in the 1990s. Then all the electric Guild® guitars were discontinued in the early '00s after the company was taken over by Fender®. So these already have a rarity value, notwithstanding that they are fine guitars in their own right. This one has a particularly gorgeous Quilted Maple top.
This guitar is very well made, the quality is in the details and quite obvious. There are no issues, virtually no wear to speak of. There are Les Pauls of every flavor saturating the market. This Bluesbird™ plays and sounds great, and it stands apart from the crowd.
