Way underrated. Guitar shots don't do well on dpc, even if they are perfectly execute like this one.

Nice dof and one of the better guitar images I've seen in a while. I like the white background. It seems a little..."trapped" by the border, but otherwise I like it.

Wow, the extreme DOF works well with the length of the guitar. I love how the strings blend into the background...very nice work!
