Subject: [Leica] Best guitar string for thief thwarting.

It's a thread (or string) that I figured would resonate with a few people on 
the list. 

(If you had any idea how fierceIy I've avoided using the word "resonate" in 
its trendy context--used in place of the elegant, direct, time-tested word 
"appeal"--you'd know just how damn pleased I am to have just used in nearly the 
proper context. It's still incorrect, but the pun-factor drove me to do it. 
Guitar strings don't resonate; they vibrate and cause the body of the instrument 
to resonate. At least, in my simple world, that's how it all works. So, maybe 
I'm within six degrees of correct. After all, Kevin Bacon has heard sound 
resonating from a guitar, right?)

Okay, it's new thread.<

And a bronze one at that! :-) <<
