My sweeps sound good and clean on an acoustic car but when i hook up to my electric they sound kind of messy. any tips or reasons that could be?

I would like to find one of these "acoustic cars."

I can't sweep acoustic. I don't think very many people can. Congrats on being a very ass backward learner. Take it you usually play acoustic?

anyways... Maybe it's because the distortion is producing more out-put, making you have to mute your strings so the excess noise doesn't sound.

actually, what I just said is the truth... it's not "maybe", it's just "it's"

Yes I play acoustic a lot more than electric. But do you think its my distortion or my pick ups making the extra noise?

distortion, turn down the gain a lot, or even better, switch it off, and see what happens then, if it still isn't good, try using the neck pup instead of the bridge

Muting sounds like the problem here, but if you play acoustic alot more your gonna find it easier on acoustic. You could maybe try and put some form of muting device around you neck (maybe a hair band a la Guthrie Govan) but i'd say just practice them more on your electric slow and clean then speed up.

if you can sweep on an acoustic you really dont need that much gain

Ok, what I do Is tie a sock around the neck of my guitar really tight. It works as a mute, and you have something to wank-off in after the show!
