I understand quite a bit about guitars and what influences their sound. By keeping an open mind and not making comments like yours I can gain beneficial knowledge to add to what I already know. Your tuner analogy is in fact ridiculous, but not really studying any possible differences, I cant be sure.No, you are missing the point. The sound of a guitar is due to the sum of its parts. To say that something as trivial as a one degree difference in neck angle is totally responsible for the difference in sound between two guitars and ignoring all other factors, is ridiculous. In my opinion, it is as ridiculous as claiming two ring tuners as used on 1960 guitars sound different than one ring tuners used on 1959 guitars.
