    The Strat tried to escape. It made it out the window, jumped off the roof, but can't slide all the way down the pole.

    Agreed - some kind of random art attempt that also serves as a VooDoo warning to the cheap Asian (probably MIJ but could be 70s MIK also) to stay out of "Strattown".

    One of the guys on the Moto Guzzi board found an old Guzzi being used as a decoration. It was corroded and deteriorated, and had been hit by bullets, and was leaning against a fence in a guy's driveway. He bought it and completely restored it. You know what to do about that guitar @bobalu.

    Yeah, a tribute to a neighbourhood musician who died was my first thought as well. Ex-GF/spouse was my second guess.

    If you can play Stairway to Heaven in that position while climbing and hanging onto the pole, you win a prize.....

    Or it may have been nailed to the pole because it's owner (nailed to a separate pole just down the road) was playing Stairway To Heaven in a Stairway Free Zone...

    They could not afford the wood chipper rental fees so this was the next best thing to warn others of the risk of non strat, strat shaped firewood.

    Why is it called a hydro pole?
    Do Canadians run water through above-ground lines?
    Seems like it would freeze up there.
    Maybe something about this hydro pole thing makes people more tempted to nail guitars to them.

    I think you are being serious, but maybe not....

    Hydro as in hydro electricity (water turbines in dams). We use hydro and electricity synonymously in much of the the country and many of our major electrical companies have hydro in their names. When the power goes out, many will call it a hydro failure. Even though we have a fair bit of nuclear generation in Ontario, you won't hear anyone say we had a nuclear failure. Weird, eh?
