What is the SUNN enclosure on top of the speaker cab?

Looks like a JBL HF radiator used in the early Sunn Coliseum PA system. But, what's up with the Stratocaster headstock? Looks like some clumsy Photoshop work!

I think it's the Sunn JBL HF radiator also. That is one funky looking strat headstock for sure, think it's possible that it suffered damage from Jimi's well known destructive stage show prior to the pic? Looks pretty clean, but I suppose it's conceivable that he busted it off along the grain and the ax was still playable.

Thanks. My thought on the strat head was also that it suffered stage trauma. The edge is irregular.
