Do acoustic guitars sound the same as acoustic electric guitars?

DO they sound the same when it is not plugged in?

Ii found a electirc acoustic guitar for cheap and want to know if they sound any different from a regular acoustic when they are not plugged into an amp?

Also do they have to be plugged into an amp to be played?

    There might be a tiny little difference when it's not plugged in, but probably not enough to notice, if there's any at all.

    And no, it doesn't have to be plugged in to play it.

    They sound the same pretty much, when not plugged in. The only thing that might make it sound different is the body style...
