ok i have a squire california strat, with ernie ball hybrid (9-42s) strings. the guitar is either basswood or alder, and the neck is maple w/rosewood fingerboard.
and i have a cort k6 with the same strings, but the cort is "set thru", with a slimmer neck and faster action. the body is mahogany, and the neck is maple w/ ebony fingerboard.

so the question: y does my squire strat sound "fuller" unplugged. like it's louder, and sounds "stronger" and sounds more "bassy". y?? could it be the floyd rose on my cort, or the fact that it has a slimmer neck? or is it the string height?

Yes. Inside strats is a lot of room - usually - which to some extent works as the body of an acoustic guitar.

Amp settings can also make a major difference

Try playing around with them untill you (Almost) get the same sound as it would be when unplugged.

why do you need it to sound louder unplugged?


why is an acoustic guitar louder than an electric unplugged?
is it because of the wood type?

^unless ive read it wrong, he's comparing two electric's acoustic abilities side by side.


my martin acoustic sound way fuller acoustically than my MIA fender strat.
and my can opener opens a can better than my knife does, even tho the knife is sharper.
do you get it, man?

some guitars are not meant to be played unplugged. it's not a defect in the electric. that's not how it's used.

You've read it wrong (no offense)

He is wondering why his strat sounds "fuller" unplugged then plugged because thats not supposed to be that way with an electric

I read it as he's saying it's fuller unplugged than the Cort.
