My brother bought this guitar for me:
http://www.samedaymusic.com/product--EPIAJ100CE

He ordered one, it came damaged, so he ordered another.

I go to tune it and find that a few frets buzz. I adjust the truss rod, only to find that even if I max out the adjustment, the frets still buzz. I fixed the issue ny spacing the strings on top of the bridge with some plastic from a Bic pen.

I go to plug it in, I insert the cable, and I push the plug out.

I get the plug out, after breaking the kinked stringed (while loosening them) on the damaged guitar. I get the plug out of the gift guitar, and find that the contacts are loose an d screwy.

I replace the plug, breaking the strings on the gift guitar as well (kinked as well) only to push it in once again.

I used the cable that was supplied with the guitar, I didn't force it, I simply inserted the plug carefully into the guitar.

Any advice? The electric/acoustic Ibanez guitars seem to have a decent price, are those better?

It's a 170$ guitar, can't be expecting too much.

Its sort of silly to say that because its $170 a person should expected buzzing frets that are beyond adjustment or faulty plugs.

Solution then?

How does raising the string with the wall of a Bic pen cause the plug to push through, or cause the strings to buzz?

No, but they should expect faulty parts in general.

Maybe after a while, not after plugging it in for the first time.
