..i think mass of the wood is more important for electrics (it can aid sustain a little, but so can a million other things - if a guitar doesn't have enough sustain, a brass nut a massive bridge will make it sound unlike the way it looks).

But, I guess it's two parts. I don't play my guitars much right now, but when I pick them up, I like the electrics to be resonant and have strong mids.

As soon as you put electronics on an electric guitar, if the whole thing is screwed together right (or glued) and something isn't drastically wrong, the electrics, scale, bridge mass,etc, take over. It's not like an acoustic where you hear the characteristics of the instrument that well.
