It's not worth the upcharge for the good quality stuff. The luthier and top wood is far and away more important, as that's what will give you responsiveness and tone. It will still sound like a guitar by that luthier and likely be indistinguishable from their other similar non-BRW instruments.

I have 8 BRW guitars, as well as some madagascar, EIR, and mahogany instruments. Some of the BRW ones do not sound anywhere near as good as the other woods. There is some placebo effect to the whole thing so if you'd like to partake, paying the upcharge is the only way to get that !
YMMV...
