We've built a lot of guitar amps in our shop. Several of my employees build guitar amps which they play in their bands. None have come anywhere near the transparency of our OTL guitar amp; its much easier to hear the difference between a really good pickup and a cheap one, as well as the character of the guitar cable itself.

That's your experience.My experience is that most OPT's used in guitar amps are bad, including those from notorious firms.... I guess the one you used was no exception. For me OTL's have more troubles than advantages.

P.S.
I am actually assuming that one is sure about all the other things because often people attribute things to the wrong cause. The output transformer is often the scapegoat for other troubles that people are unable to spot. 99% of users of OTP's do not really know how it works and so it's easy to make up their mind about the "transparency" tale. That's just snake oil theory. a proper transformer can more transparent than any other electronic component. In the case of guitar amp where the bandwidth is even narrower that is absolutely true.
Personal beliefs, including generic comments about the sound, with no objective proof repeated over and over at some point become the truth. Real thing is different.
