Doesn't really make sense. The energy that makes the wood vibrate comes entirely from the string, i.e. it takes away the string's energy.to keep it ringing, and sustain the played note
A major issue could be the coupling between the neck and the body, the bridge and the body, the nut and the neck, and the frets and the neck. Basically, any contact point between any two pieces that are involved with string vibration.it's just the strings and nothing else

That's a massive caveat though. Guitar body isn't tuned to resonate at every single frequency the guitar can produce.exactly the frequency of the string
Did you completely mute the other strings?I tried this with an A-string on a guitar in my friend's studio. It resonated much longer with the fork, since acoustic feedback is a thing.
The physics of it just doesn't make sense to me. The string gets 100% of the energy from you plucking it. Body vibrating means it captured some of that energy, meaning the string now has less energy. What you're suggesting is that body wood prevents the string from decaying as rapidly. But it's entirely unclear by which mechanism it would do that.The wood captures the resonance and feeds it back
I remember looking this stuff up a while ago. Here's something I've found now after quick searching:On a guitar, if there was no wood to resonate, the vibration energy would just go into thin air.
It's not useless though. If you're playing guitar with distortion, then things like wood and pickups and hands aren't going to make NEARLY the difference people are lead to believe. If you're spending tons on pickups because you can't get a sound you like or entire new guitars so you can get the "best" wood, you could waste a shit ton of money, when all you needed was a new speaker.That video is crap.
And all this physics stuff is so useless.
Guitar internet is completely saturated with this "it can't change tone because physics" even when it clearly sounds different.
Like, just play the guitar and see if you like how it sounds or not.
