Are ATG-1's guitar/pickup models affected by the type of guitar you are using?

I was wondering if the sound of the guitar/pickups models is affected by the characteristics of the actual guitar you are hooking up into the ATG-1 input (through a hex pickup).

I ask this because I own several types of guitars (Les Pauls, Strats, Teles, with solid, hollow and semihollow bodies, with fixed bridges, tremolos, floyd roses, or bigsbys, etc), that do have very different "acoustic" characteristics which I'm guessing hex pickups can capture. So I was wondering if using let's say a solid body Strat with a tremolo versus a hollowed body Casino with a fixed bridge will affect in any perceivable manner the output sound of the guitar/pickup models of the ATG-1.

My goal with understanding this is to determine whether it makes sense to buy and install hex pickups on different types of guitars to use with the ATG-1 in order to take advantage of the difference in tonal characteristics when combined with the models, or if this is overkill because they'll all sound pretty much the same (in which case the decision of what guitars I should put hex pickups on will be simply based on which one's I play the most).

There will be a slight sonic difference between different guitars when used with the ATG-1.  Obviously, the more extreme of a difference between the instruments (you mention Strat w/trem vs. hollow body), the bigger the sonic difference will be.
