I would suggest nurbs for this, as it would be the quicker method.
(for me at least)

I would create my strings as degree 2 curves, complete with the tie-off at both the cranks at the neck, and the well between the pickups.

Then, create nurbs circles of the circumference of each string, and then extrude each circle to its' coresponding string curve.

Hope that helped
