Okay, heres a Christmas puzzle for you. Assuming all the resistors are the same value, whats the overall resistance in ohms from head to toe of the guitarist?
The customary bag of jelly-babies for the first correct answer.

With all resistors equal (R Ohm),
Body would be two times 2R in parallel resulting in 1R, with another R in parallel, total body resistance 0,5R.
One leg would be 2 R in series with that.
So the equivalent value would be 2,5 R from head to one toe.
If he puts both feet down on a conducting surface, it would be 1,5 R
F2B or not to be....

2.5k
But saying that, looks like a wire link going from top to middle so I would say that only the 2 bottom resistors count. 1k plus 1 k = 2 k. But if it’s not a link then 2.5k

Well, to my eyes Ron is right, the body resistor is shorted by the 'guitar strap' so only the right leg counts.
So the proud winner, chosen from many thousands of entries in a hotly-contested... erm... contest, is our very own Ron, who will be awarded a bag of Jelly Babies next time we meet up :D
