Im not terribly familiar with either guitar, but higher output pickups make pinch harmonics way easier to play.

It matters on how low, and close your strings are to your pick ups.
I think thinner strings will do better with pinch harmonics on your strat.

If both guitars are unplugged, then string height has nothing to do with it, you're probably just hitting the wrong spots on the strat.

Agreed. The Ibanez probably has more frets than the strat and that messes up where the harmonics can come out. On a 24 fret Ibanez the last fret is about where the first pickup on an SSS strat is as far as string length is concerned.

I don't see how having the extra frets will mess up where the harmonics are. They are both the same scale length so the harmonics will occur at the same places along the length of the strings.

Because the extra frets mess up where you hit the harmonic... If you're not familiar with harmonics, and you play a harmonic above the 24th fret on a guitar, then go to your other 22 fret guitar thinking "The harmonic is at the end of the fretboard", when it's actually about an inch past the fretboard.

OK, no. The harmonic is in the same place. Like you just said. You're hitting the same spot. THere just happens to be a fret there on a 24 fretter.

Yeh, it's just all in [someone's] head, you think you're hitting it in the same spot but you're not.

I was just talking about the 5th / 7th / 12th harmonics
