Why are the S models so inflated on used market right now?

As the title states, on the used market the S model guitars are insane and it seems spending $600 is not viable when I could get a prestige RG for close to that price if not a mint one
The beater ones that have a lot of issues would cost enough to repair to get up to speed, so might as well buy some S prestige, but even I read all of them have sustain issues except the Egen18 or something.

I just saw a 1995 S540fm on Reverb for $900. I think that's too much

RGs have always been more popular so with more*Prestige RGs sold you'll see more used. Some also had higher list prices*when sold new.
