Why do some people prefer strat, some prefer telecastor and some people even change the pick ups but the guitars all sound the same to me ????

Probably because you just aren't good enough to know better.

Have you tried bypassing the distortion-overdrive-octave-wahwah combo pedal?

While this is harsh, it's also the truth.

My ears still aren't good enough to hear some of the subtle differences others hear.

Get a hearing test, if you're not almost deaf, train your ears until you can hear the difference.

So you're not one of those daft teenagers at a party that say my tone sounds good on the hosts 90 dollar wood scrap, and I have to take time out of my night to explain to you that it's shit, and why it's shit.

Do you regularly taste 5 guys?

The same guys each time, or just random strangers?

To sell gullible guitarists pointless things and watch them squibble over magnets lol

That's kind of true. Many guitarists are engulfed in the idea of needing something completely unnecessary costing hundreds of dollars while they stop hearing the difference they made after 15 minutes of playing.

To be fair, the biggest factor in tone is the amp.

You play any guitar through a Line 6 Spider II and it'll sound like ass. Also, most people prefer a certain tone, and will set an amp up to sound like that, compensating for the instruments character and pretty much negating the impact.
Don't you hate it when you're reading a sentence and it doesn't end how you testicles.

Amp is the biggest factor, but people who say guitar doesn't make much difference are utterly ridiculous. Just the difference between a strat and a tele is phenomenal, let alone when you start using mahogany, humbuckers etc. You can set up an amp to be good for the same sort of sound with a bunch of different guitars, but negate the impact is precisely what you can't do. Also a tele into a line 6 spider sounds pretty different (and imo WAY better) than any humbucker guitar. Might still sound broadly shit but tone isn't just on a scale of good to bad...

The difference is huge between most guitars, and you notice this most when using the same amp set up in the same way and just swapping the guitars out. But when you have a Les Paul with everything set at 5, then you plug in a strat and start cutting out the treble and boosting the bass you begin to negate the character of the strat, trying to imitate the Les Paul. It by no means removes the difference, but if you're using a modelling amp, with digital effects, you'll find it harder to tell.

Of course, plug it into a nice valve amp and the guitars character becomes harder to hide

Could be the amp you hear them through. A shitty Line 6 is going to make them sound a lot more similar than a wide open Fender deluxe reverb will.

What you need is a new amp. But really you just got to have a good ear for that stuff, If you say a fender and a schecter sound the same you're full of shit.

When you first start out your ear just won't be very good. I remember when I got my first tiny little modeler amp with several different shitty distortions and I thought it was the most awesome thing ever, but then as my ear got better and I heard other amps I realized how crappy it was. Differences in guitars and pickups are harder to hear, especially with more effects and distortion and such because the amp and effects have the biggest impact on the sound, but as your ears get better you'll notice the differences and they do matter.

There's definitely a difference in tone, but then again, that's what the dwellers of GG&A would say about using different brands power adapters for pedals, so what's my opinion really worth?
