using a spline you can have the violin string wrapping around the pegs every easily

From what I see in that picture, the strings look like they are bending. To get them to look tightly drawn, you should try to get them to be mostly linear. All of the parts that hold the string, should have the string going straight into it, not curving into it. I hope that helps.
