They are easier than thay look. I've made two. You just have to get a good pattern and then the rest is just making the small pieces ahead of time so you can give it the little details. Good Luck.

Samantha is correct. They are easier then they appear. If you need a pattern, let me know. My child is small so he has a 3/4 size electric and base guitar. I just traced it!

Oh one question I was do you make the arm of the guitar? How do you shape it?

You carve it out of cake and then i shave it down at an angle like the real neck of a guitar when it's laying down.
