Is it a Stratocaster from Outer Space ?

Is it some weird spaceship ? Is it a Stratocaster from outer space ? It looks like a Stratocaster went on a UFO ride and came back with some extra-terrestrial flair. The aliens must have been rockin' out to some Jimi Hendrix before they landed on Earth. No matter...
