Have seen others use spaghetti brushed with lustre dust.....two, if necessary. Or they use gumpaste pushed thru a small-diameter hole disk, dried, etc.....

gumpaste cracked when I did mine. tried 50/50 with fondant and it was very hard to push thru the extruder and they cracked during transport. I switched to straight fondant because easier to push thru and they didn't crack. Hope this help.

I did just fondant. It lays down on the frets, and isn't completely straight, but other than that... Duff uses real guitar strings...

I use white wrapped florist wire. Stays perfectly straight. Not edible, of course.
