Today I opened my Fender Jazz Bass and was surprised to notice that it doesn't really contain electronics other than the pickups, the nobs and a capacitor (which is only relevant when using the tone nob). So, provided one does not believe that wood affects the sound significantly, does it mean that, if I were to place pickups from a U.S. Fender onto a cheap Squier Jazz, then I would get the same sound? Assuming the strings and the physical features of the guitars are all the same (size, distance between strings and pickups, etc) and putting technique, amps and pedals aside. Let's also put aside playability, quality of materials and craftsmanship. I have no doubt that an American Fender will always be superior in that regard. I am only speaking about sound quality. Would it be essentially the same tone?
