But really, stop the tonewoods-discussion right NOW, otherwise this thread will derail and get closed in no time.

It changes how much they vibrate and the "timbre" of the note. I have different guitars that are louder than others unplugged, have a different frequency response, different ammounts of sustain, some of them are much more obvious with harmonics.

A lot of things add up to this, the hardware (bridge), the woods obviously play a part in this and these characteristics come out through the amp. The wood does play a smaller part than other things but it still plays an important part.
