    thank you all for the comments! And, yes, the 120s is correct. I experimented with a number of light sources, but it turned out that my puny LED gave me the effect I wanted...but with little f, needed the shutter open. Disclosure for eagle1: not a skilled guitarist, in fact, this may be the most interesting thing I've done with the instrument in some time!

    I think this is a great idea for the theme, and I like the angle. I wish the body of the guitar had been a bit more visible.

    A simply wonderful photo in all respects.

    Not wild about this unnatural look but at least you stripped it down to some essential elements. Top 10 - barely.

    Great idea beautifully done.
But is 120s real? This must have been a really small light within the body.

    Easily, my #1 vote. Very nice idea!

    Ah - a fellow musician who plays a 12-string guitar. Something near and dear to my heart! But moreover, this is a wonderful BandW rendering, and the lighting is well done.

    Almost looks like a negative, great composition and exposure. Would have been nice if there was a little more detail in the dark areas.

    high in my favorites. only suggestion would be to bring up the highlights to include the pinstripe edge on the body or just come in closer on the opening. neat idea.
