Yes, this is the one that was stolen and recovered!!! Theory was that perhaps the guy that returned it had something to do with the theft and was stuck with it because he had no way of selling such a unique guitar. My flickr site had the photo and info with my phone number and offering a reward. The guy said that he googled the guitar info and ended up at my photo page with the reward offer and my phone number.
I know that I should keep it. I am having Matt build me a custom right now and would like to get that one paid off. Then some daay down the line get a Tiger from him.
I spoke to Matt yesterday and he told me that he only built 5 or 6 with the Irwin eagle logo and that he has been regularly offered an extra $1,000, or $8,000, to build them with that logo. But he won't do it out of respect for Irwin. That's pretty cool and it shows the integrity that goes into this guy's builds.
So anyways, that's the deal. I have a HUGE vintage gear collection and I have been selling off much of it. My guitars just don't get the attention they deserve, sadly. With the custom I'm getting from him, I think I will still have one very special guitar.
