Here's what I have so far:

What do you think? Btw, would you like him to have an accessory of some kind, perhaps a flute or lyre?

Maybe not a flute, but a lyre or lute would probably do the trick. :)

We can already have animated NPCs. So you could also create a bard which is playing its instrument instead of having it on its back. I could also create a "flying notes" particle effect.

A small group of them would also work (and may be better).

If a group, perhaps one who sings, solely using the voice as “instrument” (or having some simple drone instrument)? [Off topic: Can a lute be used to drone?]

Nice concept, it reminds me of wandering mendicants/minstrels! :)

As nice as the idea of a group is, for the purpose of this particular bard/minstrel, a single one would be best.

Looks good, if he also could dance a little bit while playing the guitar, that would be nice :)

You should make the guitar move a bit, too. It looks very static at the moment. As if the guitar would be a fixed object the npc is clinging to.
