It has a lot of effect... the different wood vibrates differently from the notes, resulting in different tone. Build also changes the tone and sound quite a bit. I can't really list all of the woods and effects though

It pretty much effects 60% of your tone, wood is a pretty important part of the tone. A crappy wood such as agathis(plywood) is usually found on cheaper guitars like Squires and B.C Rich. It also determines if the guitar will have a deep or bright tone. Wood like Mahogany, which is usually found on guitars like Les Pauls will have a deeper/thicker tone, whilst wood like Alder, which are usually found on strats will have a brighter/richer tone.

Good. Any wood has a certain tone, the only crappy wood that I know of is Agathis, basswood can also sound crappy sometimes. It's really all based on personal prefrence.

One word.....Spruce.

Spruce ages better than any other wood, when it reachs 20+ years it gains an unmatchable tone, that is it you play it for those 20 years
