I carved an electric Gibson guitar out of a 12x18 cake single layer. I took a picture of the actual guitar on a cutting board with 1" increments. I made the arm of the guitar out of foamcore and covered with chocolate clay. The small details are out of gumpste and chocolate clay. Guitar was covered with buttercream and guitar strings are piped out of buttercream.

Thanks SewSweet2,

I made a 12x18 sheet cake last night. I printed off a template and took it to Kinko's for enlargement. I will carve and decorate tonight. Thanks for your help.

This thread is about an acoustic guitar, but some of the ideas might be helpful to you nonetheless.
