If wood gets old, it often does sound better. I experienced this for two

modern violin makers can buy old wood. Since not everybody is willing to
pay for a Stradivarius (or a good fake ;), while people die of hunger on
this planet, I heard about modern violin makers who should make violins,
that are wanted as a Stradivarius.
Rich people often get original guitars from the 70s, original amps from
the 70s, but they are unable to play guitar, they start to learn. Most
significant are the musicians abilities. Some time ago Robin quoted
something from the film "Step Across the Border". I don't know what he
quoted, but I remember a black man playing with drumsticks on buckets.
If you know how to play buckets, they can sound much better than a very
good drum set, played by an averaged drummer.
Btw. homestudio recordings can sound professional, if you make the
quirks of the gear, part of your composition.
Necessity is the mother of invention.
