The big difference between an old instrument and a new one is years of vibrations of the strings on the older one.
This will settles the wood fibers, causing some frequencies to resonate more readily while making some others vibrate less.(BP Feb 97)
: As far as I know, this is due to many factors, mains being both the gradual loss of magnetic pull in the pickup magnets (which makes the bass sound punchier) and the gradual wear of the neck and body finish, which allows the wood to "breathe" more, thus resonating in a different way.
