An acoustic, especially a dry acoustic, forces you to generate the volume and tone.

Right, but how hard do you pick it? With what pick?
How loud is the instrument? Have you considered raising the action to get more volume out of the instrument?
If you play in an un-mic'd, acoustic ensemble, these questions become very important.
If you can play cleanly and efficiently in that medium, the natural compression and volume of an electric instrument seems like cheating.
