I have an Ibanez acoustic/electric and it refuses to play on any amp. No matter how I change the settings, there's still a very loud buzzing noise when I hit the last three strings. I have to have the volume loud because I play in church so it's really aggravating that I can't find any amp to work. I have a Raven and Line 6 Spider. Is this typical of acoustics?
Sounds like either a dead battery, bad wiring or something wrong with the preamp. None of my acoustics have issues playing into an amp, so I would say this is not typical.
^+1 Methinks it's a dead battery.
