How to make a curly guitar neck

I want to make a curl out of a guitar neck. Just to give you some idea, I want to know how I can make the neck a bit curled up to the top so that the entire guitar looks like a written “g”. The problem is that all those strings and the details are made of many different objects and I cannot make them curly one by one. I would really appreciate it if someone tells me how I can make something like a path and make the neck follow that.

1) – given you already have this much done:
Mesh Warp is your friend.

Don’t add too many rows and columns – becomes hard to make smooth.

So – DON’T do this (8 x 9):

Do do this (3 x 3):

Which as you can see, allows you to melt your vector guitar pretty well.

Or 2:

Make a pattern brush of your neck – see this question for details – I promise it would work for you too – super-quickie beneath link to show how that would work / look:
