This is a list of legally-free musical instrument models and other music-related items, originally compiled for Music2u4u's 2011 "Music and Monsters" Freebie Contest. While all of the resources listed here are free-to-own, some of these models are only free-to-use for non-commercial purposes. It is the user's responsibility to remain in compliance with each model's license.

Second post in this thread: Music-Related Items

As always with my lists, contributions of links to other legal free musical instrument models and music-related items are not only welcome, they're encouraged.
