That's why most musicians will literally play dozens upon dozens of instruments until they find "the one". I got lucky with both of mine, it only took trying a couple dozen before I found the perfect (for me) Fender Tele and Fender American Jazz bass. You know it as soon as you start playing it. The same goes with amps but they are less so because they have less organic material. Having said that, I've worked on many Fender tube heads that have a distinct sound. The windings in the transformers, the capacitors, the type of resistors, the difference in tubes that are all hand-made, the different speakers, cabinets... ok, it's as complex as a guitar but you players know what I mean.
