Couldn't of said it better -you take a chance on some builds - Ive always felt buying an existing guitar - is a better bargain ( when you do your homework )
but my suggestion to to personal play it before you buy -
To say its a better wood than EIR is a bunch of baloney -it depends on the wood and the builder - their is phenominal EIR -

Do most people appreciate a BR -not really -honestly 99 % dont need it - ( many wouldn't understand the difference )

its a players wood not a listeners wood !
