This isn't exactly what I was going for, but I wasn't taking the necessary time to set up the shot. Just a quick attempt, which I may need to refine. No PP, just a slight crop and resize.

Very nice shot. In the challenge discussion thread, Barbara and I were naming different kinds of bridges. I mentioned bridges on violins and other orchestral string instruments. I didn't mention guitars as I wasn't sure if a guitar had a bridge or not. In your picture, I can see it has a very small one. It only appears to raise the strings a quarter inch or so. The bridge on a violin is much deeper, perhaps 1-1/2 inches.

That's a beautiful looking instrument. I can imagine it sounds as good as it looks.

very nice...

it's my personal preference to have the whole bridge in the shot like this, but that's often very hard to do without having distracting elements in the background, but, with selective lighting on the guitar (by way of a lamp, or a sun spot on the floor of light coming in a window) you can darken the background..

nice work
