It probably depends on the # of servings you need. I did one and started with an 11X15 pan. I made two layers, stacked, and carved from that.

This is for a qtr sheet cake. If you just trace everything bigger, you can use a half sheet.

I do not like the wilton Pan guitar's as the neck is too short and looks stubby. HTH.

I used a 9" x 13", 2 layers. I didn't look at the template here, made my own.....but you can use a print program to size it.

I used a 13x9 for the two cakes I did. As was said above, the size of the sheet pan is going to depend on how many servings you need. For the first one I baked mini loafs to make the handle, the second one I think I used a square cake cut in strips.

I used a 13X9 and then a round 8" can pan for the arm! It was my first bass guitar cake, a little messy (lots of crumbs because I carved it) but it turned out ok icon_razz.gif (in my pics)
