In the case of guitars though the difference primarily comes from production and QA margins - you can find amazing mexican teles and completely awful ones, whereas the american ones tend to be a bit more consistent.
Digital hard or soft synths being made of bits tend not to vary much from a serial number to another Although apparently analog ones can have their "own" sound due to component values margins as well.
