It is possible to get a very dry, pure sound of the guitar going direct. Sounds nothing like an amp. Works for those funky Prince-style cleans, especially on a Strat. I've done it, its heard on many recordings.

Very nice guitar work by Cory using this, sounds great. It's a very limited tone though.
Who would've thought we'd ever agree on something - but in this case I totally do. Kickass player, nice sound as well, but not what you'd usually chose.
