All you need to start is the thinnest guitar string, a nail and a power supply.
Simple power supply could be a servo tester connected to a brushed ESC and battery.

I use a Bow fabricated from PVC pipe and fittings. The end pieces are 1/2" PVC pipe and fittings, the center is 3/4" PVC Pipe (make sure the wall thickness allows the 1/2" PVC to slide inside, but not overly sloppy).

You can juggle the measurements to make any size bow you need. I glue the end sections with PVC cement, but not the center section, which allows me to change bow length at whim.

Using a transformer appears to be a popular approach.
