I play unplugged most of the time, so I can focus on getting the sound right without distortion covering up my mistakes or anything, but i practice plugged in sometimes

My Gear
Cort X-2 electric with 24 frets and 2 humbucker's dark Blue
Kustom DFX100 With Celestion Speakers,and thats it now (lol)

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

thats correct. For example, Artificla Harmonics are barely audible when not unplugged. You can still make them, but its barely audible.
