Chart: 64 Vintage Guitars Played By Your Favorite Rock Stars

Pop Chart Lab makes some of the coolest looking charts / prints / posters that I've seen.  Their design philosophy employs a simple, clean aesthetic.  I'm particularly happy to see their music-related efforts pop up every now and then.  Though this print doesn't feature an Irwin or Languedoc, there are pleny of iconic guitars (and basses) from many of the best in the business, basically listed chronologically for almost 100 years.  As they describe on their site:

Rendered in exquisite detail is everything from Leadbelly's famed 12-string to Woody Guthrie's Fascist-killing machine to multi-necked monsters to an axe shaped like an axe. Containing representations of the famed instruments that have brought countless headbanging riffs and wailing solos into the world, this print is guaranteed to up the rocking of any wall to 11.

Each print is signed by the artists and numbered from a first printing of 500.

Using 100 lb. archival recycled stock certified by The Forest Stewardship Council, this poster is pressed on an offset lithographic press with vegetable-based inks in Flatlands, Brooklyn.

The print is $27 and is available on their site.  See below for an inventory of the guitars featured on the print.
