Default Price of Brazilian Rosewood guitars

It seems that pre-owned Brazilian guitars have really taken a hit. One shop is asking $6K for a Bourgeois Bryan Sutton Limited. And that's the asking price. I remember these guitars being snatched up at $10K plus when they came out. This is just one example of many I've seen.

If Brazilian Rosewood is becoming more scarce and if it really is the "grail" tonewood, why would this be? How are builders continuing to justify the huge upcharge? Is the "it's the builder, not the wood" philosophy taking over? Is Brazilian Rosewood losing it's mystique and/or overrated?

So many question.....
