Unhappy AF 55 not sounding right

Hi Guys
I have an AF 55 Ibanez hollow body.. Lovely guitar.
But when i play it unplugged it sounds out of tune - but when its plugged into an amp it sounds fine.
At first I blamed my ears but I soon discounted that because I could hear the difference.
Can anyone answer why this is?
I find it very off putting when I am just sitting noodling; Hence I dont play it as much as I should.

Do you think you could be subconsciously trying to compensate for the lack of amplification by fretting harder and causing notes to be sharp?

Could be,
Thinking about it its only on chords, when I play something like a BB King lick it sounds ok.
Thank you SpiderM
