What I noticed is that when you play like this you hear more of the wood vibrating and more (?different?) overtones than when plugged in. I'm also trying to get THAT sound out of my speaker, but I guess it's impossible because of the fact that Strat pickups only pick up the vibrations of the strings and what you hear unamplified is more to do with the wood, so maybe you need a contact mic to add this to the sound.

i like the tone of playing unpluged also and know the sound your looking for.
for starters youll need a clean amp. and youll have to work your tone and vol on the guitar till you find the sweet spot.

an EQ pedal will be helpful. slide the 3 center sliders way down and itll almost sound like an acoustic guitar

Perhaps you can take both guitars, go to a good store and try out different amps till you find what you need?

You're always going to hear the colouration of the pickups and amplifier to what you hear unplugged.

You could try running your guitar through a mic preamp and into the board, or running your guitar into an aux-in or effects loop return of a guitar amp, but again, you're going to be hearing the pickups.
