Nice shot! i think it would benefit from slightly more dramatic natural light... maybe some diffuse light spilling over the guitar. Maybe place it near a window on a cloudy day... right now it looks like indoor light is giving it a bit of a yellow cast.

Looks like it is detached from the table - and eye shifts from the part in focus to this "boundary".
IMHO a dark tablecloth would improve the presentation. Definitely worth playing around with lighting.

I love the subject matter. Love the way it almost is floating off the table. Love the warm light, but it doesn’t look like natural outdoor light. Has a staged feel to it. The stacked focus vs the bokeh, and the light vs the dark, make this an interesting play on contrasting elements.

. The table and guitar seems to compete for the attention.
Composition and focus is good though. I would have done the same.

While the focus stacing done perfectly, the composition could be better. I would streghten the "horizon". I think this slightly off angle isn't that flattering, I would go from exact center or more off to create a stronger diagonal.

There is nothing as beautiful as a guitar.

If the guitar neck was a little more at an angle, this would look better.

It's a nice starting point, good job with the focus stacking. Agree with the comments regarding the lighting and angle, if you tweak this a bit it would make for a much more dramatic photo.
