I would just create a nurbs curve for the wire, and then a nurbs circle, then extrude it.

Yeah, then just add a texture map of some spiraled wire and maybe even a bump. But for when the strings wrap around the tuning pegs. If you want them to be realistic. Make sure you have plenty of CVs. I really like this project. Looks great. How did you come across that topology by the way. Looks different, but also somewhat efficient. Conversion?

hers what i got so far



just need to do the inlays on fretboard and the headstock

the topology.. u mean the thickness and stuff
i just did it by eye.. since ive seen many of these.. and also grabbed a few reference images from the web
the strings i just did by taking a cylinder and stretchin it...
might not be the best way.. il try that extract thing with the circle...

With the topology, I mean the wireframe, and how it appears on the outside of your model. Like triangles or quads.
