I've had this guitar for about 2 weeks now and have doing some pretty thorough testing with it. First of all, it's gorgeous. The burst is great. I had been wanting to try out a GA for a while, and when it came along in burst form, I knew my time had come. Construction, fit, and finish are all top notch. I haven't noticed any issues with any of that.
Regarding the sound, I am pretty blown away. I will admit I wasn't expecting much, given that the 114 has a laminate body. But that Taylor bracing and tone really goes a long way.
When compared to my 20 year old all solid 000-16 with fresh strings, this 114 sounds MUCH livelier. And I don't think it's just "new guitar syndrome" coloring my opinion, others have said the same. It seems to keep up with a dread a lot better than the 000, too. It's not as "deep" as a dread, but there's something else going on that makes up for it.
Overall, very happy with this purchase. This was a pre-order, and my Sweetwater sales engineer, Matt, kept me updated on when they were expecting the guitar to come in. When it did come in, he not only let me know that it would be shipping out and at my door the next day, he E-Mailed me 11 pictures of the guitar they took during their inspection of it. Nice touch!
