Stairway to Heaven - Deforming groups

Hey Maya-friends and Pros

I am currently stuck with a problem in Maya.

I need to deform a group of different groups.

I have a Guitarfretboard that is build of 3 groups.

What i want to do is create kind of a "stairway to heaven".
So i would need to deform the whole group and make twirls and ups and downs, like a railcoaster.

The best way that i found to do that is to set a lattice on the group. But then when I deform the lattice points the single groups wont hold together anymore and start to seperate and mess up.

I hope you can help me

Appreciate it a lot

Thank you!
