I guessed from the context that this was a valuable collector's item. I'm picturing Swampy taking the stuff to the local Boys and Girls club to sell so they can take a trip to Disneyland. The next panel, of course, would reveal that the kids were being taken to every Disney park in the world.

Nintendo Stadium Events is the rarest NES cartridge of all time. Only 200 cartridges were sold, the rest were destroyed, and it is estimated that only 10-20 cartridges survive today. The empty box itself is worth $10k. The cartridge is worth a lot more, and if everything is in the package it's pushing over $40k.

The rifle stock could be a Holland and Holland shotgun, the guitar could be an original Fender Strat, the engine block could be from a Porsche or Cobra...

After <s>fifteen minutes of Googling</s> some intense research, I think that the headstock of that guitar looks more like a Gibson Flying V than any of the Fender 'casters.

And on the same side. Maybe with a little curl.
Assuming it's not a cheap pawn-shop find, possibly a Thunderbird.

There doesn't seem to be a curl on that guitar, which is why it looks more like a Gibson Flying V than a Fender.

A little curl toward the tuners. Possibly, at least; it's a little tough to see.
But this has four tuners on one side. A Flying V, at least a Gibson one, would have three tuners on each.
So IMO it's possibly a Thunderbird bass, unless it's whatever Swampy ran across at a garage sale.
Or just a simplification for the art's sake.
