I don't think there will ever be a clear cut answer to any of these questions. Humans are very emotional about music.

Another clear problem is population. No experiment is done in a vacuum, so to speak. Clearly the dependent variable, the guitar wood, needs more than one or two guitars made of a specific wood, to gain any real data. In other words, you need several guitars made of the same species, from the same tree, within tightly controlled lab parameters, as test subjects. The more, the better. Let's say a bare minimum of 10, but 100 would give clearer data points, of each species.

So, you'd need (let's go with EIR) a bare minimum of 10 guitars made with EIR and we'll use cherry as the sustainable wood so you'd need the same number of cherry. Everything else between these two variables would need to be identical, almost an impossibility if using wood.

But, it's fun to speculate how it could be done
