I read here somewhere that DSO had Phil's Irwin for a while but figured they just borrowed it for a few photos... but then I found a Terrapin from 93 on Youtube and Kevin is playing it! :shock: Holy crap, that's cool! Does anyone know the full story? What happened to it after that that led Kevin to switch back to a 70's P-bass?

I think the deal is that they frequently have that Irwin bass on long-term loan from Kidd Candelerio (who also owns Jerry's old 50's goldtop Les Paul). Fwiw, Phil states in his bio that his Irwin had a lizard inlay on the back, but this bass has no back inlay at all (that's one I gotta remember to ask them about next time they come through.)
