Prepare your senses, guitar aficionados, for a Stratocaster that’s undergone more modifications than a rocket ship prepping for Mars. This Strat took “modding” to an intergalactic level. It looks so wrong, we would gladly give it a try… Just to get a taste of sticker’s claim “the sound in your head”.

At first glance, you might ask, “What the heck is it supposed to do?” Besides brewing your morning coffee, here are a few guesses:

  1. With that many switches, it’s probably capable of time travel. Hit the right combo, and you’re back at Woodstock.
  2. It might just be an undercover robot in disguise—Stratocaster by day, Optimus Prime by night.
  3. Those dual humbuckers? They’re not just for sound; they double as a Wi-Fi hotspot.
  4. The spring with the hidden humbucker beneath could be a direct line to communicate with whales—or maybe it’s just trying to catch radio waves from Neptune.
  5. And let’s not overlook the sheer possibility that it’s a high-stakes game of Simon Says, and the loser has to play an entire gig with a broken string.

This Stratocaster which is obviously some sort of synth guitar experiment has more options than a choose-your-own-adventure novel. With a Fender Mustang bridge and an array of humbuckers in colors that Crayola can’t even name, it’s like a candy store for the musically adventurous and electrically brave.

And those unidentifiable gizmos here and there? We’re half convinced they’re there to measure the probability of how many guitarists it takes to screw in a lightbulb. The answer, of course, is irrelevant when you have a guitar that probably doubles as a lighthouse.

So, we tip our hats to the Strat that’s less about “Sweet Home Alabama” and more about “Sweet Home, Andromeda”. May your strings vibrate at frequencies unknown, and may your music play on in the hearts of earthlings and extraterrestrials alike. Rock on, you otherworldly wonder, rock on!
