probably not. vai's guitar is alder, but, for example, satriani's guitar is made from a much higher grade of basswood, better bridge, better pickups, lots matters besides purely the body wood.

Its not only regarding the type of wood, but also the grade of wood. Where they are grown, how dense are they all contribute to the tone
