You'll want some direct glare to light up the metal pickup, whammy bars, and strings.

the trick is to add another light, with minimal reflection, so that you can adjust the ratio of the amount of glare to the amount of light hitting the surface but not in a direct reflection.

Good luck!

Btw; you didn't do too bad so far!
