The textures are stretched, also enable shadows for better looking render. Looks good otherwise.

As DjBlazer said the textured are stretched towards the top of the guitars, simply planar mapping the front face of the guitars should resolve that.

Default Thankyou!

Yeah i used a reference image to model these guitars. I have used polygonal cubes , Nubs Curves and the extrude function of the NURBS curves to model the string. Majority of these are modelled using Polygonal cubes. Thankyou the responses. As DjBlazer said i will have a look into texturing of the main body. But planar mapping and all is the area i haven't reached. I will bring on shadows. Thankyou

they look nice. Any chance we can see a closer view of the neck and frets?

Im curious as to how you modeled the frets as they have given me trouble in the past.
