I have owned and played a Doug Irwin Earthworm #34 since about 1976
This acquisition was during a visit to Santa Rosa with a friend of mine who introduced me to Doug.
Recently I've become interested in acquiring some supporting documentation of it's authenticity other than my word and the guitar itself.
Although the intention is to pass the guitar down to my heirs, I feel the need to have proof of authenticity and value.
Suggestions on this endeavor are welcome.

Now the DOLLAR sign guitar is not our proudest moment in design and building at D Irwin and Company. It was a contracted job that helped pay a few bills but my heart really wasn't into that project! It belong to a fellow in a Bay area band called "27 dollar snap on face".
To clarify, I am still building and design instruments. They range in price from $2000.00 up to $32,000.00
best to all,
