Then somewhere around September, the amplifier picks up. That pretty much carries you down to the last two weeks of the year. Well, on one of those two weeks nobody does anything, so you’ve got five days left. And in those five days, everything else anybody wants to argue about, be it pickups, paint, wood, cables, capacitors, anything—that all falls into those five days. It’s an insignificant part of the total experience.”
My point is that there are endless tones one guitar is capable of..... My theory is that it's because guitar amps aren't linear devices, they are highly colored, their frequency response is crazy-uneven, and guitar speakers are even worse, in a good way.

A speakers main job is to reproduce the signal of the amp WITHOUT coloring it. Amps too are designed to be pretty linear. A guitar amp has some treble roll off compared to a Hifi amp but you would be dialing it our anyway if it had a hifi sound or the distortion would sound horrible.
