There are many different factors in the signal chain, even gauge and material of the type of pick you may use - or fingers versus nails

I'm not sure how much the shape of the guitar matters, but the way the wood is cut is important, density of the wood has a definite effect... burl's and maple's being very dense and "bright" as opposed to softer woods sounding "warmer". Metals used can also have an effect, Brass nuts and bridge saddles are associated with more sustain while Stainless steel frets give a guitar a very bright tone.

the density of the wood or woods used changes the tonal quality of any instrument .

I have been studying woods and the sound quality but I haven't given much thought to the metals used .I have changed to bone saddles and brass bridge pins on the acoustics I have but haven't given a lot of thought to the metals on an electric . thanks for the info .
