This is something a little special- a Les Paul Style guitar signed by former Yardbirds members Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck. This is especially impressive when you consider the fact that the three famed guitarists weren't in the Yardbirds at the same time.

The three signatures were obtained independantly and perhaps most impressively of all it looks like the guitar has enjoyed a happy, used life unlike most occasions when you'll see a cheap, generic Strat copy that's been signed presumably because they don't want to 'waste' an expensive guitar since nine times out of ten those guitars will never be actually played. 

Another interesting thing to notice about the guitar is the neck, which looks maple- unusual for a Les Paul copy and the neck is a bolt on, again unusual on an LP. No word on an auction estimate from Heritage but it's a very interesting and likeable piece!
