Say you had a marimba and xylophone, would you get the creativity points?
And are they required to have 12 tones (sharps/flats) or just 8 (one octave)

You would get creativity points... but not very many. It's recommended that you don't bring two very similar instruments.

It's all twelve, not just eight. Include sharps and flats.

For a guitar, would I be able to use a guitar pick and store bought strings?

Strings, yes because the rules state that you can use commercial strings. However, I don't think the guitar pick would be allowed. And yes, I am in Division B because I'm interested in taking this event next year when it moves to my division.

Make your own guitar pick. Just cut up an old (make sure it's inactivated) credit card/gift card into a pick-like shape. I play a "real" guitar, and if I'm ever short on picks, I'll make one from an old card. Works fine

Congratulations to all who participated at Nationals this year! I really enjoyed seeing and hearing all of your instruments. I should have fairly detailed pictures of the (winning) bass marimba up in about a week or so, and perhaps some photos of the violin and a video of the performance soon after that. Until then, here is a video of our performance at states. We did the same pieces at nationals, but they were better practiced and more refined.

I don't think they'll be as lenient as they were this year with the instrument choices.

I expect that there will be more restrictions on instruments and construction as a way of making it EASIER for division B competitors.
In my opinion, wind instruments are the most complicated, and so if anything is going to be prohibited it's those.
