I kind of get the point. However, later in the chain means it has a bigger effect when you swap it out for something different.
But if there is some aggravating nuance that appeared way earlier in the chain, there's a solid chance no amount of macro changes fixes that. I've had many times where I tried and tried to get a sound I liked, tweaking amps, cabs, pedals, etc. only to ultimately swap out guitars and boom! There was the tone.
Don't get me wrong, I love my amps and cabs specifically because of how much they impact the sound, but in some situations the smallest thing can be holding up the whole production.
may be worth a non-scienctific survey of the sso crew to see which piece had the greatest tonal shift to “that’s what I was after this whole time”, even
I'd be interested to read the experiences! I know right now for instance, I've been working on this album and the other guitar player cannot get the sound she's wanting out of this one guitar, no matter which tones we use. What's more interesting, she has another of this same model, that one sounds great on record.
