[Abbenay] Resistivity of guitar strings?

Measuring an acoustic from the bridge to the neck showed about 2 Ohms
on the 1st string and 1.1 Ohms on the 2nd (the two finest strings),
the other 4 strings are wound. It would probably be more accurate to
grab a pack of strings new and measure them separately; I can probably
find a pack somewhere around here if you really want me to ;)
