"Is it worth the money"? That's a decision for you to make. One might say that is a Gibson which costs 1 lac worth the money? It depends on the person and the use he's planning to put it to.

So if it sounds that much better to you, if you are a good player and if you can afford it, go for it.
But remember, if you are just learning, going for a very high end guitar (which you cannot afford) by dipping into your rent money may not be that good an idea.
And remember if you get better later and need a better guitar, you can always sell the current guitar and buy a better one.
I was in a similar situation sometime back. After trying out a lot of guitars I went for a Greg Bennett AV1. It sounds great for my style, which is mainly rhythm. Get to a store, try out a few guitars and see where it takes you.
All you need is the passion. Everything else comes after it.
