    Question D4 code question

    I came across a D4NT HR but I'm not familiar with what the "HR" stands for. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It's a '96 model from Westerly.

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, a gel applied by hand as opposed to sprayed and buffed in multiple layers.

    I've had four and they were all HR'ed. This was #4.



    I like 'em just fine. Another underappreciated Guild.

    That's really funny, Ray. French polish is the most TEDIOUS finish ever. It's great an all if you're young and you have a lot of time left.

    Joe, if they're so great, why did you get rid of 3?? Or 4 if you don't still have one?? Confusing to me......

    I enjoy opening the packages and enjoying them for a while. It's like GAS/Xmas all rolled into one.
    If they absolutely blow me away, I might keep it....sort of like my current D35 (also my fourth).
    FWIW, my current inventory won't be going anywhere for obvious reasons.

    If I had kept every guitar I ever bought, I'd be in competition with Grot.
