    He says no on one of his videos and can tune his guitars from sheer familiarity with the timbre of the strings.

    I can do the same and also do not have perfect pitch (thank God.)

    When he hears a high note, he will say something like "isn't that a B5? Then he hits a B5 on his guitar, and yep, it's a B5.

    He has spent so much time working on each and every note, that he recognizes them as notes he has practiced singing, and remembers what that note is.

    I'm of the opinion that it can be developed with respect to your primary instrument. That appears to be what Ken has done with both guitar and voice.
