That should make more of an audible difference than replacing your prosumer interface with another prosumer interface.
He'll get some insertion loss FWIW. If the interface has a proper instrument in with high enough impedance, there is really nothing he'll gain. A well-designed instrument input is essentially the same as the input of a properly designed stomp box input (that's good). To your point, that doesn't mean that any losses don't sound good, I surely have a box I built where I can adjust impedance because sometimes I don't want an exactly pure copy of the original guitar signal.
If it requires a null test to find it, it is by definition minuscule.
