I would disagree with this. Two guitars with identical parts, pickups, and construction even made of the same types of wood can sound different as even two pieces of the same species of wood can resonate differently or have different densities. I built two strats, both with basswood/maple top bodies from the same manufacturer. Both with the same two piece maple necks from the same manufacturer. Same fret size, same tuners, same pickups, same bridges, pots, caps, etc. Everything identical, but one sounds vastly brighter than the other. I assumed the difference may have been from the pickups, so I swapped them back and forth, and yet the brighter guitar always sounded brighter regardless of which set of Suhr Aldrich pickups were in it. To me the only difference are the individual pieces of wood.Tonewood is just like Big Mac, Pepsi or other million dollar word created to evoke emotion in the consumers mind. It's all smoke and mirrors and marketing designed to part you from your $$.
Try watching several guitar videos blindfolded and you quickly realize without your eyes tonewood means nothing.
