In the words of Rolf Harris: "Can ya see what it is yet?!"

This is my guitar (a replica of Brian May's Red Special if anyone's interested) photographed up the neck from the bridge. The background is partly the guitar case and partly my suit jacket... :-P

I sharpened it quite a lot to emphasize the strings, rotated it slightly so it wasn't so bleedin wonky! Took over 40 shots of this to get the one i wanted - experimented with having my hand on there playing a chord but i couldn't play it and press the button for the camera and keep the camera still for long enough! Oh well, it turned out ok!

Unexpected point of view. So much so that I'm glad you explain what it is in the title! Good lighting.

great color. POV almost removes all context (not a bad thing, I don't think!)

Nice! Might have been better if the focus was on the left and fadded out.

I'm usually against guitar pics, but nice way to see it.

There are a lot of guitar photos in the challenge but this is one of the best! Very nice balance of colour and darkness. 9
