From Gibson:

Commemorating the Life of the Legend That Is Jeff Beck​

Jeff Beck is considered one of the best guitarists in history, capable of playing virtually anything in his own unique, soulful style. Jeff Beck got his start playing in the Yardbirds, making groundbreaking music on a ’59 Les Paul Standard. The “YardBurst” is a faithful recreation of this legendary guitar, complete with its unique and instantly identifiable traits, such as the classic white bobbin humbuckers and black single-ply pickguard. An aged Lifton™ hardshell case and a selection of case candy commemorating the life of the legend that is Jeff Beck are also included. Only 130 of these exceptional recreations were handmade by the expert luthiers of the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville, Tennessee, as part of this remarkable limited run and artfully aged to match the original as it appeared during Jeff’s Yardbird days by the Murphy Lab.
