I have two German Spruce/Brazilian Rosewood classical guitars. One is superb, the other not so much. My conclusion is that the luthier's skill is more critical than the choice of wood. That said, high grade Brazilian Rosewood in the hands of a expert builder tends to produce guitars with strong, clear basses and rich sparkly trebles. So is it worth the price??? That depends on the individual guitar and the prospective buyer's level of desire for a guitar constructed with Brazilian Rosewood back and sides.
