I don't really have a dog in this hunt as I don't make my living making music, and all of my electrics are 'best' at something, otherwise I'd move them on. I play my electrics plugged in and my acoustics unplugged. I don't expect my electrics to sound good unplugged, or my acoustics to sound good plugged in. Do some of my electrics have a bit more resonance and sustain? Maybe, but that's probably more due to a better set up on some than others rather than something intrinsic to the guitars themselves. All of that goes away and is dependent on pickups/electronics, compression, and playing style once plugged in.
