And so you've joined... jem
Not to be adversarial (well any more so than someone bashing a musical instrument's most vital characteristic in a forum built for fans of said instrument...) but what does this even mean? A basswood Jem? An alder one? PAF Pros? Breeds? Evos? Because I've got an alder Jem with Evolution pickups that'll take the paint off your house, sir.
Granted, with their (arguably unparalleled) floating trems, ample routing (where we put those big pickups you can't put in Strats) and nice thin necks, unplugged they might not be as beefy as, I dunno, a Les Paul. But since these are electric guitars, I tend to amplify mine, so that works out quite well.
Also, it's nice not to feel like you've got a Victorian fireplace slung around your neck.
If we're talking unplugged, well, how good do your other electrical items work when deprived of power? How fast is your PC once you unplug it from the wall? Seems like something along the lines of a Martin might be an idea if natural acoustics is what we're judging here.
Hmmm. Strats are sorta thin and twangy, aren't they? :P
