Most of the time I see guitar shots going the opposite direction, down the neck. Your approach is fresh. The DOF is hurting this a little, as it's hard to see much in focus. I'm not saying that some of it isn't in focus, just a large portion is not. Guessing by the light and reflections, you were near a window for light? Seems a bit strong on the left side of your photo. Did you consider trimming about 1/3 off the left side of this? Would have given more impact to the lines portion of this. All of this is obviously, JMO. ;^) Good luck in the challenge.

Compositionally, i think I would have tried a more definite diagonal to this: especially for the landscape orientation. This way, a portrait shot would have allowed your to include simply more of your lines, and to present the length of them better. Some more care with light might also help the impact of the image - those reflections aren't helping the overall sense of tidiness, neatness of the shot.
