To me the Bernabes are worth the xtra cost. I had M10 and M30, only guitars I have owned that had no wolf tones or dead spots anywhere on the fingerboard. I quit playing my other guitars after I got these.
I tried a few of the lowest range Bernabes (M5 spruce, M10 spruce & M10 cedar) a few months ago when I was in Munich, and they really sounded great - I was very taken by the sound, although not the price tag! Tried the M10's again today (back in Munich again) and they still sound rich and full of overtones. But they do cost quite a bit extra compared to other small factories'/workshops' guitars - €3599 for the cedar and €3899 for the spruce. Is it worth so much? I guess each person will have his own answer to that question. For me, it's not a yes, at least not now... (cos I've just bought an old Dieter Hopf).
