If its just for show or a bucket list, go right ahead. But if you're looking for a nice guitar to play and love, I feel the extra money could go toward better grades of wood, bling, ergonomics (rib and arm bevel), or even a more prestigious builder.
Yep, this. (Doubt there is any discernible tone difference between each of the rosewood species and agree that you are paying a whole lot extra for the Brazilian variety because of its rarity).
