If that's actually an Irwin, it would likely have come from the Alembic shop where they would experiment with ideas as they learned their Alembic chops, long before Doug was making his distinctive axes we're more familiar with. That guitar has no Irwin (Larry Robinson inspired) fretboard inlay work. The headstock logo is weird. It does look trippy and psychedelic though.
