I played a custom made GA4-EL (electronic) a few months ago and was blown away by the sound. I had my heart set on purchasing the 414-CE when the dealer had me play the GA4-EL. It was essentially the same guitar as the 414 without the cutaway but the sound difference was amazing. This guitar has such a wonderful meaty midrange that just blew me away. I ended up buying the GA4-EL just a few days later and I have not regretted it. I play it every Sunday patched through our church sound system and it sounds absolutely amazing plugged in. This guitar is an awesome guitar and I would recommend it to anybody. If you have a chance to pick up one of the custom made GA4's with the electonic system... do not let it slip you by.
I've had my GA4 for two years now, and have let many friends try it out as well. Everyone loves it!! It is very good for picking and for strumming without a pick. Strumming with pick sounds higher than a dreadnought which scared me at first but now I really enjoy it. This guitar is so smooth and easy to play and holds its shape no matter what the environment(I travel all over the world). It is a wonderful guitar, especially for its price compared to others. I'm thrilled with my Taylor and play more than ever.
The Taylor GA4 is a well kept secret in the Taylor lineup, and this model is not often seen in stores. The combination of quality Sitka with Ovangkol back and side produce a tone that is very deep but has punch. It reminds me of what you would get if you crossed the best attributes of mahogany, rosewood, and maple into a single wood. Lots of snap if playing fingerstyle, but plenty of overtone when hitting chords. It is hard to find an equal guitar with features like a bound ebony fingerboard in this price range. There is nothing cheap about the build quality, it is top notch an flawless in the example I own. Action is what you would expect from a Taylor which is smooth as butter. 1 3/4 inch nut works great for fingerstyle yet the neck manages to make strumming comfortable for rhythm as well. Highly recomended.
